UK housing starts “lowest since 1924”
on December 16, 2008

The UK is expected to build just 135,000 houses this year, compared to 203,500 in 2007. This is the lowest level since 1924, when 87.000 houses were being built (excluding the war period). The outlook for 2009 is also poor, as many current projects date from before the start of the financial crisis. In turn, this suggests that chemical demand will remain at low levels into this important sector.
