Reality check: will building 300,000 new homes a year make housing more affordable?

BBC's Reality Check team spoke to a number of housing experts yesterday to see if Philip Hammond's claim that building 300,000 new homes a year in England would start to make housing more affordable. The verdict? 300,000 is a good starting point but there's no universal confidence that it would make much difference to affordability. See what Mike Oxley, Director of CCHPR, and others have to say on the BBC website.
