The Independent report:

Labour councils are building twice as many homes in their areas as Conservatives local authorities, new research reveals today.

Since the last election, an average of 403 social and affordable homes have been built in each Labour council area, compared with 201 in each Tory-held authority.

There are an average of 618 social and affordable homes in the pipeline, with planning permission and financing in place, in each Labour area compared with 365 homes in each Conservative council.
