National Federation of Builders extend congratulations to Rishi Sunak on his appointment as Chancellor.


We would like to extend our congratulations to Rishi Sunak on his appointment as Chancellor. Changes to the operation of the department, which will see number 10 and number 11 share one special advisor unit, will help the Prime Ministers ambitions to more easily be delivered.

Richard Beresford, chief executive of the National Federation of Builders (NFB), commented: “The new chancellor has an opportunity to deliver on some of the Prime Ministers lofty ambitions but also create some legacies for himself. Previous chancellors failed to take late payment seriously enough and we hope Mr Sunak is able to make late payment a thing of the past.

Beresford continued, “Two of the UK’s greatest concerns are the housing crisis and climate emergency. The new chancellor could go a long way to solving both by investing in infrastructure, social housing and retrofit schemes on our old, leaky homes.”
