Free in this week’s New Statesman: Sadiq Khan and Kevin McCloud on the housing crisis

A first look at this week’s issue of Spotlight, free in the New Statesman.

By New Statesman

Following Theresa May’s speech on the housing crisis this week the latest edition of Spotlight, the New Statesman‘s regular policy supplement, focuses on housing policy with opinion, expert analysis and in-depth interviews.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan outlines his plans for more affordable homes in the capital, while Grand Designs host Kevin McCloud talks to Spotlight editor Will Dunn about why it’s okay to be a snob about “identikit” housing.

Labour MP for Port and Neston Justin Madders writes on his Leasehold Reform Bill, Gus Riddy explains why investment funds are quietly privatising social housing, and Rohan Banerjee asks if timber is the building material of the future.

Spotlight is the British Society of Magazine Editors’ 2017 Launch of the Year.
