"Reclassification makes no material changes to the operation of housing associations, does not nationalise housing associations and the Government have no plans to impose new controls on the sector – including over spending or borrowing. Housing associations will continue to be able to access those existing Government programmes that have been open to them. The Government remain committed to delivering 275,000 new affordable homes."

Greg Clark, communities secretary, Written Ministerial Statement , 2nd November 2015

We are pleased that the Government has accepted our offer to independently deliver an extension to the Right to Buy. This is a better and more flexible Right to Buy for residents, for housing associations and the nation’s housing supply. Residents will get the opportunity to realise their dreams of homeownership and housing associations will be able to replace the homes sold, boosting the nation’s housing supply.

David Orr, Response to David Cameron's announcement of an agreement between the government and the NHF on Right to Buy, 7th October 2015

"I think the housing association sector has a simple choice. It was in the manifesto, the government got elected with a clear majority and they can either work with us to make this happen and recognise that the government has a democratic mandate to deliver or there can be a more confrontational relationship but that's not one we seek.”
