Cameron promises 200,000 starter homes if Tories win election

Some 200,000 homes will be made available to first-time buyers in England by 2020 if the Tories win the election, David Cameron has promised.

The coalition has already announced plans for 100,000 cut-price homes for people aged under 40.

The PM said the Tories would double it if elected, to offer more people the security of home ownership.

Labour said the plan was inadequate and housing groups warned affordable rented schemes would lose out as a result.
