Please Sir, the Dog Ate My Homework. And May I Have Some More?

From the Evening Standard:
The Government’s announcement about changes to the planning system is a step in the right direction.
Yet policy-makers still fail to address the fundamental issue of development capacity across the industry and the ever-increasing cost of materials. From bricklayers to site managers, the lack of skilled construction workers and professionals in Britain is one of the largest factors that continues to constrain the supply of new homes. Until this is addressed, it is unlikely that we will see a marked difference.
