Mark Littlewood appears on BBC Radio 5 Live

Mark Littlewood, Director General at the Institute of Economic Affairs has appeared on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Wake up to Money programme to discuss what Philip Hammond should be prioritising at the Budget.

In the interview Mark argues that at the Budget the government must do something on planning liberalisation. We desperately need to change the supply side on that. The only way to address intergenerational unfairness is to fix the housing market. In comparison to young Americans, our young are not laden with any more debt than them, but they will find it incredibly more difficult to get on the housing ladder than their American counterparts. This is almost entirely down to a lack of supply in the UK housing market.
