NDM6109 Paul Davies (Preseli
To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:
1. Notes the Welsh Government's decision to revoke the 'right to buy' initiative.
2. Recognises that since 1980, when 'right to buy' was introduced in Wales, 130,000 families have been given the opportunity to buy their own council house, and that the people of Wales need to be trusted to make their own decisions on home ownership.
3. Calls on the Welsh Government to recognise that 'right to buy' creates a valuable opportunity for people to own their own homes.
4. Believes that the annual target for house building should be at least 14,000 homes a year by 2020, following the recommendations of the Federation of Master Builders in their Programme for Government: 2015 to 2020.
