Minister`s pledges on homes may boost power tool use

Communities minister Andrew Stunell's commitment to home building could prompt a greater need for power tools in the UK.

Speaking at the Liberal Democrat Autumn Conference yesterday (Tuesday September 20th), he pledged to address the shortage of housing in Britain.

Mr Stunell explained that the waiting lists for social housing have "soared" to record highs and suggested that the coalition had "inherited" this state of affairs from Labour.

The minister revealed that the government's target of building 150,000 new social homes for rent was on-course to exceed expectations but conceded that there is more to be done.

"In the coming weeks, I will be bringing forward the details of our empty homes strategy," he revealed.

Mr Stunell went on to claim that the coalition "will do better" in the social housing arena.

Earlier in the month, the Department of Energy and Climate Change revealed that nearly 300,000 insulation measures have been fitted in UK properties over the last three months.
