UK's $1bn Plan To Ease London Housing Crisis

UK Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott has set out details of a $1.1bn expansion in house building in the south-east of England.

"The plans could lead to 200,000 new homes being built in the region, with thousands of subsidised properties for key workers such as nurses and teachers."
