Housing will be on the minds of many in this week's local elections, though some will be voting for more local housebuilding - and some for less. Our residential real estate reporter, Damian Shepherd, says the planning system is broken, with new data on how far local councils' housing budgets have been cut in recent years. Property entrepreneur Giles Mackay gives us his view. He says shared ownership needs to be part of the solution. Plus: how should government better measure all the assets it owns? Carl Emmerson, deputy director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies on Labour's plans for another fiscal rule. Hosted by Lizzy Burden, Caroline Hepker and Yuan Potts.
