    FTSE gets sterling boost, land purchase threat dents housebuilders

    Britain's top share index touched a session high as chancellor Philip Hammond delivered his budget statement on Wednesday, boosted by a dip in sterling as Brexit-bound Britain slashed economic growth forecasts. Housebuilding stocks swung sharply, losing ground after Hammond announced a review of unused planning permissions, though a stamp duty exemption to spur house buying offered some support to the sector. The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) ended the session just 0.1 percent higher at 7,419.02 points as sterling recovered and headed higher, though the blue chip index still outperformed a negative European market.

    British housebuilders hit by land-banking review

    Shares in British housebuilders tumbled on Wednesday after the government said it would reclaim land that was not developed quickly enough, potentially hitting future profits. Britain's biggest housebuilders, which include Berkeley (BKGH.L), Barratt (BDEV.L), Persimmon (PSN.L) and Taylor Wimpey (TW.L), have been accused in the past of sitting on land to restrict the number of properties they build to drive up house prices. Chancellor Philip Hammond set out a raft of measures in his annual budget to boost the housing market on Wednesday, including a review of the gap between the number of planning permissions granted and the housing developments that begin.
