Housing minister Brandon Lewis’s call for former services personnel to consider new careers building homes has been welcomed by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

Victoria Hampson, the institution’s regional director, said: “Mass skills shortages continue to blight the construction sector. Harnessing the transferable skills of ex-services personnel to fill gaps in all the major construction trades will be vital in solving the North East’s housing shortfall.”
