Free with this week’s New Statesman: Ed Miliband and David Lammy on inequality in Britain’s housing

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

By New Statesman

This week’s edition of Spotlight, the New Statesman’s award-winning policy supplement, focuses on housing.

Former leader of the Labour Party Ed Miliband, in his role as a commissioner of Shelter’s Big Conversation on social housing, writes the issue’s lead opinion piece on the desperate need for more state-supplied homes, while Augusta Riddy investigates the growing trend of modular housing construction.

David Lammy, the Labour MP for Tottenham, features in an interview with Rohan Banerjee, discussing the risk of racially motivated bias in both the public and private housing sector; as Bob Kerslake, former head of the Civil Service, speaks to Spotlight editor Will Dunn about the wider social unrest which has stemmed from a lack of affordable housing.

Graham Farrant, chief executive and chief registrar at HM Land Registry, also writes on the role that technology will play in shaping the future of conveyancing.
