From BBC UK today with, of course, no BBC Scotland interest:

A government plan to create 200,000 new homes for first-time buyers has resulted in no homes being built, the National Audit Office has found. Announced in 2014, “starter homes” were meant to be aimed at those under the age of 40 and sold at a 20% discount. Former prime minister David Cameron committed to the scheme in the 2015 Conservative Party manifesto as a way of tackling the affordable housing crisis.

However, thanks to a parliamentary question from the Dim Lebs on July 16th 2019, we can reveal that Scotland is making good progress toward its target of 50 000 affordable homes by May 2021 with 25 000 (50%) already delivered.
