Scottish Labour’s Support for First Time Buyers

I was very interested to read Kezia Dugdale’s proposals in support of first time buyers.  Whilst I do not think the plan goes far enough, I think it is very positive that we have a party that appears to recognise the aspirational nature of home ownership and the importance of first time buyers to the housing market and the wider economy.   Not only does a stable housing market assist the economy, my view is that it also benefits society as a whole as people also have a financial stake in their communities as well as a moral one.

I would urge all parties to look at more ways of supporting first time buyers and also schemes to increase the amount of house being built.
