Sunak admitted: “It’s getting harder and I want to make sure it gets easier.

“Not only will we build homes in the right places… but we will make sure we support young people to get great jobs so they can save for that deposit.”

The news comes after the Tory Party published its manifesto tomorrow, in what many see as its last chance to swing public opinion in its favor.

Meanwhile, four Tory candidates are backing Laurence Fox’s right-wing Recovery Party in return for campaign contributions of £5,000 each.

Dame Andrea Jenkyns, Brendan Clarke-Smith, Karl McCartney and Marco Longhi promised to keep the “four commitments to culture”.

These include leaving the European Court of Human Rights, repealing the Human Rights Act, banning gender reassignment for children and reforming the Equality Act.

This is not Tory Party policy and is a blow to Rishi Sunak’s already declining authority.

Suella Braverman also said the Conservative Party must “embrace” Nigel Farage to “unite the right” after a disastrous few days on the campaign trail.
