Where does the money go? Developers’ pockets

Guardian letters:

“The £350m for the NHS now and £1.6bn next year is dwarfed by the extra £10bn Philip Hammond recently found to shovel to development-sector shareholders through “help to buy”. And now we have the removal of stamp duty on houses up to £300,000, which will also push up prices, with the difference again going to developers or other vendors, instead of the exchequer. Another outrage.
