Rural Related Politics - An RSN weekly review

MPs will get the opportunity to question the government about the progress of the ongoing Levelling Up work in the House of Commons this week.

Today (Tuesday 5 December 2023), the new Local Government Minister Simon Hoare MP will give evidence on voter ID at the Constitution Committee.

The issue of affordable housing will be raised in the House of Lords by Lord Naseby who is asking the government what it is doing to reverse the trend of falling rates of owner-occupations among the 25-34 age group.

Also, in the Lords this week, Lord Rooker is asking the government what consideration it has given to the proposal from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and the Trussell Trust for an ‘Essentials Guarantee’ in Universal Credit.
