The National Housing Federation has published a blog entitled ‘What does Rishi Sunak’s reshuffle mean for housing?’ It can be seen here.
It outlines the changes to Government roles:
- Lee Rowley becomes Housing Minister, to replace a sacked Rachel Maclean. This is the second time Rowley has this role, as he served the housing brief for around seven weeks in 2022 under former prime minister Liz Truss.
- Simon Hoare became Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State in the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities
