On that point, the Housing Finance Agency was before the committee recently on a separate issue and it stated, albeit in the context of social and affordable cost rental, that it would be more than open to providing low- or no-cost bridging loans in that context. Given that it is the primary conduit of funding for the local authority loan you could even look at something which has a low cost or no cost in terms of the rate for such a bridging loan because it was talking about a loan of up to five years.
