Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities recall (Homelessness and housing)

Inquiry

In March 2021 the Committee reported that the Government’s emergency housing policy to get people sleeping rough off the streets as the Covid pandemic hit had “exposed a rough sleeping problem many times larger than Government has previously acknowledged

The Committee also noted the ongoing lack of progress towards either of the promise to end rough sleeping entirely by 2024, or the Government’s manifesto commitments on house-building.

The Committee will recall senior officials at MHCLG for questions on addressing the housing crisis in the UK and the ongoing cladding scandal. There will also be questions on the wider “Levelling Up” agenda, including follow up on the Towns Fund which the Committee reported on in 2020.

If you have evidence on any of these issues to inform this session with MHCLG, please submit it here by Thursday 28 October 2021.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Thursday 28 October 2021.
