Good news, but for too many?

I give a cautious welcome to the Chancellor's Help to Buy scheme.  
This is really good news for our younger people in particular, to get into the all important housing market. It is a good use of British taxpayers' money - helping our young to get a well founded start.

But I do have a concern. With UKIP, such a scheme would be for British subjects and not generally for EU citizens who are not British.  

The government must clarify this,  as UKIP thinks the intention may fall foul of EU law - as so much does and will do, until we get out of the EU.

So, George, what is the test and how does this sit with EU law and rules? Could any EU citizen apply?
