Ex-Labour leader launches campaign to build 3.1m social homes in next 20 years

The former Labour leader Ed Miliband has called on Jeremy Corbyn to adopt a more radical plan to solve the housing crisis, as he launched a national campaign to win backing for the biggest programme of council and social housing in English history.

Miliband is calling on the public and party leaders to rally behind a vision of building 3.1m new social homes in the next 20 years, while conceding that it could push down house prices

The target is contained in a report by an independent social housing commission, convened by the housing charity Shelter, and is higher than the Labour leadership’s vision of a million in the next decade.
