Social Care (7 Dec 2017)

Clive Betts: I welcome the Green Paper, and I hope that we can build cross-party consensus for the long term. However, any change will be years away from that Green Paper.

The Local Government Association estimates for next year a funding gap of £2.6 billion on a cross-party basis. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Adult Social Care (4 Dec 2017)

Clive Betts: In the Budget statement, the words “social care” did not pass the Chancellor’s lips.

Does the Secretary of...

Hydraulic Fracturing: North East Derbyshire — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Clive Betts: The hon. Gentleman, who is a member of the Communities and Local Government Committee, makes a very good point. Supported housing is often a global term used to describe a very wide variety of provisions from different providers and different suppliers. When we have a grant system that covers all such provision, it is important that it also covers the differences, and allows for those...

Grenfell Tower (19 Oct 2017)

Clive Betts: I, too, thank the Secretary of State for coming to the Select Committee meeting and answering questions so thoroughly last week. I want to return to the point about the essential fire safety work that other councils have got to do on their tower blocks.
