Britain spends £24 billion on housing benefit and less than £1.5 billion on building homes. Do you support an increase in the social housebuilding grant to £5 billion a year to build homes?

organisation: Generation Rent

Yes. Green Party Policy is to scrap current tax reliefs on buy-to-let mortgages and use the savings to top up the social housing grant to £6 billion a year to build at least 500,000 genuinely affordable homes by 2020.
