It is a great pleasure to see the Minister in his place, which will give great reassurance to my right hon. Friend Boris Johnson that it is possible to leave the Government and rejoin at a more senior level in short order.

What discussions has the Minister had with the Minister for Housing on increasing the supply of housing and, in particular, building above shops? Whether in Birmingham, Colchester, Cheltenham or Southend, this has to be part of the solution.
