Building the homes our country needs is an absolute priority for this government. The name change for the department reflects this government’s renewed focus to deliver more homes and build stronger communities across England.

Any necessary changes will be done in a cost-efficient way with expenditure being kept to a minimum.

This would be a fraction of the cost of splitting up the Ministry as proposed by the opposition.
