Boris Johnson confirms plans to extend Right to Buy scheme targeting 2.5 million households

The prime minister said that there are approximately 2.5 million households whose homes are part of associations.

Housing charity Shelter has called the plans a "dangerous gimmick."

" If these plans progress we will remain stuck in the same destructive cycle of selling off and knocking down thousands more social homes than get built each year," Shelter CEO Polly Neate said.
