Press Release   •   Feb 12, 2010 10:16 GMT

“These comments are grossly insensitive to families booted out of their home," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Housing Minister.

Commenting on John Healey’s remark that repossession is the ‘best option for some’, Sarah Teather said:

“If this is John Healey’s best response to record repossession figures then he should just shut up.

“These comments are grossly insensitive to families booted out of their home.

“Labour has no idea what life is like for victims of the recession.  John Healey needs to get out more before he starts dismissing the misery of homelessness.”
