Housing: David Cameron vows to 'get Britain building'

Buyers of new homes will be able to borrow up to 95% of their value as part of plans the government says will help get "Britain building again".

The mortgage indemnity scheme, in which the government will underwrite part of the risk to lenders, could help up to 100,000 people in England.

It is part of a wider strategy to build more homes and boost home ownership.
