Communities and Local Government Committee - holding Ministers to account

The Communities and Local Government committee held its first evidence session recently, where we grilled the CLG Ministerial team on issues including Grenfell Tower, Housing, and Local Authority Finance Reform.

I personally questioned the Secretary of State on what he is going to do for people affected by the current leasehold scandal, which is a major issue for a number of people in areas of Weaver Vale.

I was pleased to receive an assurance that the government would look at what could be done for those already affected - in addition to changing regulations for the future.

I will be taking a close interest in what this action is, and making sure the Minister keeps this promise.
