To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, pursuant to the oral contribution of the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government of 18 June 2018, Official Report, column 14, what the timeline is of his Department's review of high streets in England.
The Government is determined to see our Great British high streets thriving now, and in the future.
This is why I have announced that my Department will launch a call for evidence over the summer looking at the future of our high street. I intend to establish an expert panel of industry leaders to draw on their experience and expertise to diagnose the issues currently affecting the health of our high streets and advise on the best approach for their revival. I will announce further detail in due course.
