MPs say 'dominance' of big home-building firms must end

"If we are to build the homes that the country so desperately needs, for sale and for rent, then this dominance must end."

Just confiscate their land banks and get overseas builders to build new homes on their freed up land banks - and cheaper.  It's globalisation.

Theres is a time tested way of doing that, you plan a new street, set out the plots and decide the height and width of each building and how many windows the frontage should have (and maybe the colour of the brickwork) Then you let different small builders complete one (or a few) houses each - they all follow the same plan for the frontage, but can make the interior of the houses completely different to match what the customers want.

Thats what they did from around 1700 until the start of the first world war.

Oh look, MP's talking about fixing the broken housing market (that they had a large hand in breaking). Anyone would think there was an election soon and they were pretending to give a s**t about ordinary folk......
