David Cameron speech launching the Conservative manifesto highlights the the extension of Right to Buy.

Key points of the speech include:

Conservatives have dreamed of building a property-owning democracy for generations, and today I can tell you what this generation of Conservatives is going to do.

The next Conservative Government will extend the Right to Buy to all housing association tenants in this country - 1.3 million extra families; a new generation given the security of a home of their own.

So this generation of Conservatives can proudly say it: the dream of a property-owning democracy is alive - and we will fulfil it.

...a simple proposition - We are the party of working people, offering you security at every stage of your life."

If you're a young person looking for training, if you're looking for a decent job, if you want to buy your own home, if you're raising a family and need help with childcare, if you fall ill, and need to rely on our NHS, if you are reaching retirement, and want real security, we are there for you - offering security at every stage of your life.

My message to Britain is this: we have come this far together. Let's not waste the past five years. Now is not a time to put it all at risk, but to build on the progress we have made.

We are the party of working people. So if you want a more secure Britain, if you want a brighter future for your family and for you, then together, let's build on what we've done and see this through.

– David Cameron
