Desperate efforts to keep the Government afloat long enough to secure a Brexit agreement has relegated the housing crisis fairly low down the priority list.

Reacting to the news of Kit Malthouse’s appointment as Housing Minister, Ian Anderson, chief executive of Iceni Projects said:

“The Prime Minister’s desperate efforts to keep the Government afloat long enough to secure a Brexit agreement has relegated the housing crisis fairly low down the priority list.

“Kit Malthouse will bring an understanding of London housing demands having served on Westminster City Council and the GLA, whilst his parliamentary constituency experience offers a wider perspective on the housing delivery challenges outside of the capital. But with all the focus on Brexit, and a fairly green Secretary of State in the renamed Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government, at this rate it is unlikely we will see Kit’s experience put to much use for the foreseeable future.”
