Michael Holmes, spokesperson at The National Homebuilding & Renovating Show and head of National Custom and Self Build Association and Russell Quirk from emoov.co.uk on the 'broken' housing market
The government is promising to fix what it calls the "broken" housing market by building thousands of new homes and helping first time buyers. Amongst the many proposals is a three-billion pound fund to get small companies building in England. It's thought that around 60 per cent of new homes are being produced by just 10 larger firms. Share Radio's James Brydges spoke to Michael Holmes, spokesperson at The National Homebuilding & Renovating Show and head of NaCSBA (National Custom and Self Build Association) and Russell Quirk, the founder of the online estate agent emoov.co.uk.

Financial planner Andy Cowan from Tilney told all about generational spending
How much money do you think you'll spend over the course of your lifetime? Well, a report has found that today's average 20 year old will spend a whopping 1.9 million pounds in total. Analysis from financial planner Tilney shows that we will have spent one million pounds by our fiftieth birthday, and will spend 400,000 pounds after we retire. It seems many of us, however, spend a lot more than we think we will after we've stopped working. To discuss the report in more detail, Share Radio reporter Sara Macham caught up with Andy Cowan from Tilney.
