“I wouldn’t say that there has been a lot of unprecedented or surprise regulation at present,” he said, speaking at the International Investors Lounge at EXPO Real yesterday.

He said that it is important that the housing crisis is fixed from the supply side in the longer term because although the current situation is caused by the energy supply crisis there is an underlying undersupply and too much regulation will disincentivise new construction.
