Annual lunch statement

Isabel Hudson, NHBC Chairman, said: "With just months to go to the General Election, we are delighted that housing is positioned front and centre of both the Conservative and Labour Party's agendas with both Minister for Housing, Brandon Lewis, and the Shadow Minister, Emma Reynolds speaking at our annual lunch.

"Last year saw strong growth returning to our sector and although this rate has not continued at the same pace in 2014, we have seen positive growth with our latest released figures for Quarter Three showing an 8% increase on the previous year.

"It is particularly encouraging to see that this is not just a London or South East phenomenon - it is taking place across the UK. However, there is a long way to go to meet the housing demand in the UK."
