Good Discussion About Brexit Labour Shortages Implications with Shadow Housing Secretary of State, G15 Members and HACT, CIH, Trowers & Hamlins

With Brexit looming ever closer, the UK housing sector faces a potential crisis, with labour shortages that could have a far reaching impact, possible outcomes being spikes in labour rates and falling quality.

This week PiLON co-hosted a working dinner along with our friends from HACT to debate and define the issue of how the United Kingdom Housing sector can focus and take hold of the issue, collectively contributing to a jobs based Brexit that will generate new thinking whilst continuing to supply the sector with a highly skilled workforce and continue to provide value for money.
