A £400million fund to kick-start housebuilding will be announced today as part of Government plans to solve Britain’s housing crisis.

David Cameron and Nick Clegg will pledge to break the “current cycle in which lenders won’t lend, builders can’t build and buyers can’t buy” when they unveil the Government’s housing strategy. That will mean people who “play by the rules” can “expect to own a decent home of their own”, they insist.
