Ed Balls: Housing strategy is 'small beer'

"It's a £400m boost. But George Osborne last year announced a £4bn cut in housing spending," he told John Humphrys.

"At least it starts to show the David Cameron and George Osborne have realised that unless you act to get growth and jobs in our economy you can't get the deficit down."
