Conservative conference: Johnson on 'broken' housing market

Boris Johnson has pledged to help young people get a “long-term fixed-rate mortgage” worth up to 95% of the home’s value.

Mr Johnson said that delivering on the Conservative manifesto pledge would allow for two million more owner-occupiers to buy their own home.

The prime minister used his conference speech he would “fix our broken housing market”.
