By: Charlotte Gerada  Published: March 2018

This briefing provides HCLG Select Committee members with background and questions to ask Ministers around current housing issues.


On Monday 12 March 2018, members of the Housing, Communities and Local Government (HCLG) Select Committee will have the opportunity to ask questions to Dominic Raab MP, Minister of State for Housing, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government and Heather Wheeler MP, Minister for Housing and Homelessness, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government about housing priorities.

This briefing gives Select Committee members background to the challenges of housing and homelessness, and on-going issues on which it would be useful to ask questions of Ministers. This includes the review of the National Planning Policy Framework, progress with remedial works for unsafe cladding and the impact of welfare reform. The shortage of homes – especially affordable homes – is at the core of many of the issues we see from our frontline services.
