Thangam Debbonaire – 2021 Comments on Stamp Duty

The comments made by Thangam Debbonaire, the Shadow Housing Secretary, on 4 March 2021.

The Conservatives have shown once again they have the wrong priorities, giving tax breaks to landlords and second homeowners while failing to tackle runaway house prices and build truly affordable housing.

After a decade of failure on housing, we needed a Budget that put us on the road to recovery and addressed the fundamental flaws in the housing market. Instead we got reheated policies with no new ideas on housing.
