This chapter reviews New Labour's housing policy, in which three phases can be identified. In the first phase the dearth of specific housing commitments in New Labour's 1997 manifesto produced a vacuum in housing policy until the publication in 2000 of the housing Green Paper Quality and choice: A decent home for all, with its emphasis on supply diversity and choice and the application of ‘new public sector management’. In stage three, a new emphasis on supply culminated in Homes for the future: More affordable, more sustainable, with its promise to boost housing supply in both the market and the social sectors.
