John Prescott QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Coming from low demand, houses available, prices falling. Depends from area to area, but if you go to the south, it's exactly the opposite.
Quotation of John Prescott
Down in the south, it's how we find the brownfield sites without taking too much land take to meet the tremendous demand for housing, and that's what I've done.
Quotation of John Prescott
First of all, in our first period of office, we were concerned about the renovation of all those old properties you talked about.
Quotation of John Prescott
I didn't recognise Newcastle there. Have you ever been to Newcastle? What a thriving, vibrant place it is at the moment.
Quotation of John Prescott
I don't make decisions by the Attorney-General. The Attorney-General makes the decisions in these matters. There's not even a war either.
Quotation of John Prescott
I have only been seeking to get them to the negotiating table and, thank God, that's where they are.
Quotation of John Prescott
I was the one that brought it in, but not only for the north-east, for every area so we can develop all the regional economies, lift up the national productivity, get greater wealth and share it more evenly.
Quotation of John Prescott
If you look at Newcastle or Gateshead, even over twenty years, even with the previous administration, it has moved quite remarkably in transforming itself.
Quotation of John Prescott
In a sense, what we do with the regional development agencies is to give them resources to look at the deficiencies in the economy in the regional areas, so they can address themselves to that.
Quotation of John Prescott
In the north east, there, they have had quite a bit of government offices moving in. It's not a new policy.
Quotation of John Prescott
Instead of saying we're meeting our target, which is set for 2010, and indeed we are, emphasise that rather than moaning and whining about "We might not reach that target".
Quotation of John Prescott
It's moving in the right direction. It was in decline under the previous administration.
Quotation of John Prescott
People want a decent house, in some cases, a new house which they want to purchase.
Quotation of John Prescott
Refurbishing I've done in the first three years and I'm still giving housing money, of course, to the north.
Quotation of John Prescott
So if you look at the money we've given, we've actually still given more in fact in housing to the north than they had the years before.
Quotation of John Prescott
That's what I think regions are about, making central government more accountable and fairer.
Quotation of John Prescott
The biggest brownfield site we've got is the Thames gateway, which is one of the growth areas I've just mentioned.
Quotation of John Prescott
The choice is not normally between the north and south. It might be between Britain and Europe.
Quotation of John Prescott
There is progress taking place, growth is better. We're only talking about two years there.
Quotation of John Prescott
We are making the fundamental changes. It was like the decent housing target. We said by 2010, we'd have taken a million houses and refurbished them into decent housing.
Quotation of John Prescott
We believe the 36, nearly 40, billion pound discount given for a right to buy houses took a million houses out of the public housing sector which is desperately needed for rent.
Quotation of John Prescott
We've given more resources. On housing, we are now establishing a regional housing pot.
Quotation of John Prescott
What government has been doing, we've got major programmes now, of billions of pounds, which are directed by central government into these areas of deprivation.
Quotation of John Prescott
When you get regional government coming along, there will be more calls for demands and controls within the region itself.
Quotation of John Prescott
Why can't we, with a more intelligent policy, actually have houses that are affordable, built at higher densities than they are at the moment and built on brownfield sites.
Quotation of John Prescott
You go down some street - no doubt it's there, and we have to do something about it, and our programmes are designed to do that - but if that's a picture of Newcastle, it's not the one I recognise and I bet none in the North East do either.
