Property Week editor Giles Barrie appeared on BBC Breakfast and News 24 on Sunday morning to trumpet Property Week’s open letter to the Prime Minister asking for empty rate relief to be restored to pre-April levels.

Giles told the BBC: 'This tax comes at the worst possible time. It is hitting people who are already on their knees and most have no choice but to bring in the wrecking ball.'
