Right-To-Buy Will Hit Affordable Homes

Rural housing campaigners are warning that the government's plan to extend right to buy legislation could decimate the provision of affordable housing.

The government says it is listening to the concerns of campaigners. Exact details of the scheme will be announced in the autumn. Read more on the BBC website.
