Election 2015: Labour pledges house-building boost

A scheme for first time-buyers could "unlock 125,000 new homes" in England under a Labour government, the shadow housing minister has claimed.

The scheme is based on the first-time buyer ISAs announced by George Osborne, which sees the government top up money people save towards a deposit to buy their first house.

Emma Reynolds told BBC Breakfast that Labour's plans would see the money saved in the ISAs invested in new housing developments.
