NHBC welcomes Mark Prisk as new Housing Minister

NHBC, the leading warranty and insurance provider for new homes in the UK, has welcomed the appointment of Mark Prisk as the new Housing Minister, as part of the Government reshuffle.

Commenting on the appointment, NHBC's Executive Chairman Isabel Hudson said that the organisation was committed to maintaining its close and constructive working relationship with CLG to help support good policy development.

She said: "NHBC has played a central role working with the Government on a number of policies, such as the Local Housing Delivery Group and Zero Carbon Homes; we look forward to continuing this relationship following the appointment of Mark Prisk as we enter another critical period for the housing sector."

"The new Minister has a number of challenges across the sector. As our latest new home registrations statistics revealed, although private sector housing registrations in the UK had their best month for over a year this July, registrations in the sector are still down 10% for May to July 2012, compared to the same period last year."
