Rishi Sunak – 2018 Comments on Empty Homes

The comments made by Rishi Sunak, the then Local Government Minister, on 23 April 2018.

While we should celebrate the number of long-term empty homes dropping by a third since 2010, there are still 200,000 vacant properties across the country.

This bill hands councils further tools to bring much-needed homes back into use and provide thousands of families with a place to call home.
