Political party conferences to address the future of housing

The National Federation of Builders (NFB) and the National House Building Council (NHBC) are jointly hosting a series of fringe events at this year’s political party conferences.

They will be holding a panel debate on housebuilding at the Labour and Conservative party conferences – both of which will take place on Sunday 21 September.

The events will be supporting the wider “Homes for Britain” campaign with the aim of ensuring that housing is high up the political agenda as we approach the next General Election.
