To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how many (a) nurses, (b) teachers and (c) social workers have benefited from the key worker initiative in (i) the Bury St Edmunds constituency and (ii) Suffolk. [120412]

No key workers have benefited from the Starter Home Initiative in Bury-St-Edmunds or other areas of Suffolk. The Starter Home Initiative is helping key workers to buy their first homes in areas where high house prices are undermining recruitment and retention. Funding was allocated via two competitive bidding rounds. No allocations of Starter Home Initiative funding were made to assist key workers in Suffolk.
