The fight for affordable homes in Cornwall steps up.

St Ives MP Andrew George is putting a Private Members Bill in to Parliament on it.

It is after the issue came out top in a public consultation.

Amongst other things it will call for a limit on the bedroom tax, controls on second homes and a new lower rung on the housing ladder.
