The UK’s chronic housing shortage – how it happened, why it matters and the way to solve it
The UK’s chronic housing shortage is lowering the quality of life for millions, turning the British dream of home ownership into a cruel nightmare – not least for ‘generation rent’. Countless vulnerable families are meanwhile being deprived of access to decent social housing, causing homelessness to spiral.
In this searing polemic, Liam Halligan offers radical solutions to the most urgent political issue of our times. Fully updated, with a foreword from former Chancellor Sajid Javid and drawing on extensive interviews with Cabinet ministers, civil servants, leading developers and struggling homebuyers across the country, Home Truths is a no-holds-barred critique of the UK’s housing crisis.
