The Sunday Telegraph has a story about wrangling happening at council level over the building of new homes. It reports that “new housing is being blocked unless councillors agree to introduce schemes such as Ulez (the Ultra Low Emission Zone in place in London) and low-traffic neighbourhoods, in an approach that the environment watchdog is preparing to use across the country”. The paper also reports former soldiers will be “called on to join a ‘surge’ force in future crises” as the size of the army reduces, and a story based on the quote from Treasury Secretary John Glen that meeting doctors’ pay demands would mean a cut to frontline services.
