Lansons Blogcast 02 – A New Contract for Britain?

In the second episode of the new Lansons Blogcast, we focus on Chancellor George Osborne’s “New contract for Britain” budget statement on July 8th, the first entirely Tory Budget for almost two decades.

Sharp welfare cuts, a new Living Wage and plans to raise the inheritance tax threshold to £1 million were some of the stand-out headlines. Days later, the government announced radical proposals to tackle Britain’s notoriously weak productivity levels, largely by relaxing planning laws in England to boost house building. So, what does all this mean? And what does it tell us about the future Britain the Government intends to build? 

Ralph Jackson (@RalphJ13), Lansons Director, and Mark Hayward, managing director of the National Association of Estate Agents, join Lansons Live head Jon Cronin (@jdmcronin), to discuss the big issues.
