The Government has selected 45 companies to build up to 10,000 new homes for the rental sector, Communities Minister Mark Prisk said.

Mr Prisk said the house-builders would share a £700 million pot to build the new homes while advice will be offered to those companies which were not successful in winning Government funding.
