    Stamp duty holiday was a sensible move to keep the house market buoyant, we don't know what would've happened without it. I think it's sensible to continue with it under current circumstances and I...

    Not quite as easy as you think. ETA supply us very patchy to say the least, not sure about Sellita but I suspect there are long lead times to get those too. Price would also hike considerably.
