I am keen to see as many people as possible get a foot on the housing ladder and be able to realise the dream of home ownership.

That’s why I am pleased the Government have abolished stamp duty for 95 per cent of first-time buyers and boosted the Help to Buy scheme. This is welcome news for us across Aldridge-Brownhills, as is the increase in personal tax allowances, and the increase in the national living wage. Government borrowing is also down to its lowest level for 17-years.
