PMQs: May and Corbyn on housing prices and mortgages

The Labour leader challenges the prime minister on people being able to afford to buy houses when he raises a question from 'Jenny' whose supermarket salary will only lead to a £73,000 mortgage.

Jeremy Corbyn questioned a government commitment to replace council houses which are sold off. Theresa May told him his figures were wrong and that the government had "delivered on the one-for-one replacement on the right to buy".

All six of Mr Corbyn's questions at PMQs were on housing, at the first session since the summer recess.
