Media Release: Shelter Scotland’s response to today’s Budget announcement

RESPONDING to today’s Budget announcement, Gordon MacRae, head of Communications and Policy, Shelter Scotland, said:

“We are thrilled to see the Chancellor has extended the existing rate of Support for Mortgage Interest to the end of the year, which will be welcome news to thousands of struggling homeowners.

“Evidence shows these schemes are making a difference on the ground, and with repossessions set to reach 53,000 this year it’s vital that safety nets are kept in place to help people stay in their homes.

“We continue to look to all political parties to make a commitment to solving our desperate housing crisis by making housing a top election priority.”
