Inheritance should go directly to grandchildren to help ease housing crisis, says housing minister

13 10 2016


A Tory minister has suggested a new way to help tackle the housing crisis – grandparents should hand their inheritance directly to their grandchildren to help them buy their first home.

Gavin Barwell, the housing minister, said the idea would help combat inter-generational unfairness, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Mr Barwell revealed his mother would be leaving her estate and home to his sons.

“There is a job here to make very strongly the moral case to people about why these homes are needed.
