House prices too high for MP to afford home

This lib dem MP can’t afford to buy a house because he can’t raise the deposit.

His £66,000 salary from representing the St Austell and Newquay constituency in Cornwall since last year’s General Election isn’t enough for him to save a deposit.

It’s not just the deposit holding him back though – high house prices are also to blame! And in pretty areas like Cornwall there are a huge number of second home owners.
