To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, with reference to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport's press release of 8 August 2018 entitled Government outlines vision to empower and invest in society on the launch of the innovation in democracy pilot scheme, whether there has been any change in departmental responsibilities that resulted in that Department issuing that press release.

The Civil Society Strategy is a cross-government effort to help build strong and connected communities that work for everyone. My Department works to ensure communities have more control over the decisions that affect them and officials in my Department work closely with other government departments, including the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports in this regard.
