L&G boss says Help to Buy is "a huge emotional distraction from the main issue" a chronic shortage of new homes.
Nigel Wilson says society will never get the quantity of new homes it needs unless the government starts building affordable homes.
Nigel Wilson "the government should be building affordable homes. It worked in the 40s, 50s and 60s, it can work in 21st century as well"
