"Every year the UK Housing Review brings us all up to speed with the hard evidence and clear analysis that should - but seldom does - inform all housing policy decisions. The Review shows us where we have come from and points us to where we are heading. This is invaluable at any time but especially now when the Political Parties are busy writing their manifestos."
