Autumn Statement reaction- house builders

Stewart Baseley, executive chairman of the Home Builders Federation said;

“The measures detailed in the Statement are another step in the right direction and should help the house building industry to build on recent increases in output. In the past three years housing supply has increased by 52% and money to deliver more affordable housing will help to broaden the supply base even further. We welcome the moves to increase and align wider public spending on infrastructure to unlock housing supply in areas where homes are desperately needed. As well as helping to support a healthier housing market these new homes will create tens of thousands of new jobs. The commitment to Help to Buy, so critical to demand and thus supply, was also positive.”
