The key role of housing in recovery from the pandemic

03 December 2020 - Morning discussion - Login for venue

Panel discussion,

The Covid 19 pandemic has had a disastrous impact on some business sectors such as leisure, travel, and commercial property. Residential building and construction has, however, largely kept going, house prices have not so far collapsed, and working from home has increased awareness of the need for adequate accommodation. Neither a home office, nor a home classroom can operate properly from the end of the kitchen table. There are therefore big economic and social incentives to increase the supply of housing, particularly in areas where there are serious housing shortages. Clive Betts MP, Chair, of the Housing, Communities and Local Government Select Committee will talk about plans and prospects for increasing the supply of housing. Three sector experts will respond followed by a general Q&A.

Speakers include:

Clive Betts MP, Chair, of the Housing, Communities and Local Government Select Committee

John Slaughter, Director of External Affairs, Home Builders Federation

Melissa Dowler, Director, Bell Philips Architects

Robert McIlveen, Director of Public Affairs for the Mineral Products Association
