<FONT color=black size=4>FEARS OVER 'PREFAB' HOMES

<FONT color=black>Problems with prefabricated homes are "being stored up for the future" as the Government bids to boost the South East housing supply, MPs have been warned.

An inquiry has revealed worries over the quality and design of prefabs, according to a Commons committee.

MPs said the Housing Corporation has been "under pressure" to create the maximum number of homes from funding.

A number of  prefabricated homes have recently been built in Hawkinge.
