17 July 2018

The Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee questions Dame Louise Casey, and Minister for Faith Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth, on the Government's Integrated Communities Strategy Green Paper.


Monday 16 July in the Thatcher Room, Portcullis House

At 4pm

Panel 1

  • Dame Louise Casey DBE CB

Panel 2

  • Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Minister for Faith, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

The Green Paper

The document sets out Government proposals to strengthen communities and identifies factors affecting integration, including migration, labour market disadvantage and language barriers. A consultation on the proposals closed in June.

Purpose of the session

Dame Louise previously led an independent review into opportunity and integration, with her final report published in December 2016. The Committee will question her on her views on the Strategy before hearing from the Minister. Questions are likely to focus on funding, the Strategy's timescale and the role of local authorities in its implementation.
