The government says the housing market is broken. David Aaronovitch asks what broke it and what it means for home owners and tenants across the country.
The government says the housing market is broken and that it's holding the country back. As prices have risen, fewer people are able to get on the housing ladder, and more are now renting privately later into their lives.
