One of the most important economic drivers in this country is the house building industry. If you build houses people spend money when they move in. The more houses you build the more money the new residents spend on their new houses.
If the government were serious about economic growth they would be investing in house building.
If the government was serious about house building they would make sure that Britain had a credible and quality driven house building industry.
The house building industry in quality build terms is the equivalent to British Leyland in the 1970s. Shoddy is the order of the day. I know I live in a brand new property. Oh how I wish that Honda built houses.
