He said;

“Demand for social housing is an issue that all elected representatives are familiar with and one which we deal with on a daily basis.

“It was therefore bizarre that the opposition in the Assembly today actually proposed to build less houses than the Executive.

“You couldn’t make this up!

“We are committed to addressing need and I believe the Housing Executive should be given the financial resources to build more social houses.

“This would be a game changer in terms of the delivery of social housing.
