Responding to a new official report revealing that the number of over-40 renters has doubled in the last ten years, Liberal Democrat Housing spokesperson Wera Hobhouse said:
"This is symptomatic of a broken housing market. We often hear about the debilitating barriers that the younger generation faces, but it is important to remember that this crisis impacts those of all ages.
“The opportunity to own a home is becoming more and more restricted to the extremely wealthy in our society.
“Swathes of hard-working individuals in the UK are unable to own a home and it is time the Government took action."
