Professor Colin Jones speaks on Radio 4’s “You and Yours”

Professor Colin Jones

Colin Jones was a member of the discussion panel on BBC Radio 4 programme, “You and Yours” on 30 July 2013 together with the UK housing minister, Don Foster. The programme discussed the current housing market context, the government’s “Help to Buy” initiative and the regulation of the private rented sector.

There are fears ‘help to buy’ will artificially inflate prices, and that’s at a time when early indications are that in some parts of the country at least, house prices are already on the rise. Professor Colin Jones comments on the boom and bust of the UK housing market and compares the UK situation with that in other countries.
