Alok Sharma MP (Reading West) has been appointed the new Housing and Planning Minister having previously been a Junior Foreign office Minister.
The RLA would like to congratulate Mr Sharma on his appointment and we are writing to him seeking an early meeting.
Commenting on the appointment of Reading West MP, Alok Sharma, as the new Housing Minister, RLA Chairman, Alan Ward said:
“We welcome the new Minster to what is a crucial role in Government and look forward to working with him.
“As he gets to work, we urge him to reflect positively on the contribution that the private rented sector and the majority of landlords who are individuals or small businesses can make to tackling the housing crisis.
“Through better enforcement of regulations to root out criminal landlords; pro-growth taxation; and a planning system that frees up small plots of unused public sector land for new homes we can ensure that the sector meets the needs of those who rely on the sector for a place to live.”
