Episode notes

Hello! This week, with the release of the report from Shelter's cross-party commission (which included Ed) we're looking at the provision of social housing and the need for a transformation in how much we build and who it is for. Historian John Boughton, author of recent book Municipal Dreams, guides us from the past to the future, then we speak to members of the Commission, Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, former Conservative Chair, and Lord Jim O'Neill to tell us how the recommendations in the report can transform the fabric of the country.
