Makes perfect sense to me.
"At its core, the crisis is a simple calculation: we need to build 250,000 homes a year yet 2012-13 saw just 108,000 new homes completed, the lowest since the 1920s, rallying to a not much better 119,000 in 2013-14.
Rather less than half what is needed. Healey and Perry emphasise that a bigger contribution is required from everybody - commercial housebuilders, housing associations and councils – but that “Above all, strong leadership and smart action from government is imperative....
Recent modelling by John Healey shows that working up to building 100,000 new social rented homes a year by the end of the next parliament would not only pay for itself in less than 30 years but provide a net benefit to the public purse of £12bn through lower housing benefit cost."
