More homes need to be constructed across the UK for economic and social reasons, one specialist has insisted.
The introduction of new homes would lead to more jobs, as the construction industry is one of the country's most recognised employers, a spokesperson from the Home Builders Federation (HBF) has noted.
Steve Turner, spokesman for the HBF, said: "If we can address the constraints currently in place, which are a lack of mortgage availability and a lack of developable land, then the industry stands to increase production."
Mr Turner emphasised that the current acute housing crisis means that more houses need to be built.
Elsewhere, Process and Control Today has reported that Fulton Limited has introduced two one-day training courses for people who are hoping to widen their knowledge of heating appliances.
Its Operator Routines & Maintenance and Steam Systems courses provide an in-depth look at the functions of boilers.
