Only 1 in 50 Haringey residents facing repossession to get help from government scheme

Labour’s attempt to support struggling home owners through the ‘Mortgage Rescue Scheme’ will only help two percent of Haringey home owners threatened by repossession according to figures I’d dug up with my colleagues.

The idea to go in and directly help home owners on the brink of repossession is a good one, but looking at the hard numbers, this seems like another Labour PR stunt with little real substance.

    This is a good initiative however the figures you state that will benefit from this scheme are so low. Why are more homeowners not able to benefit?
