Changes in Government department responsible for housing

We would like to confirm that the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has now become the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC).

The new Secretary of State for DLUHC is Rt Hon Michael Gove MP. He will also have responsibility for UK governance and elections and will therefore take on the additional title of Minister for Intergovernmental Relations.

He will be supported in the department by new Minister of State Kemi Badenoch MP and Neil O’Brien MP, who has been appointed Parliamentary Under Secretary of State.

It has also been confirmed that Ministers of State Rt Hon Christopher Pincher MP and Lord Stephen Greenhalgh, and Parliamentary Under Secretary of State Eddie Hughes MP have been reappointed to the department.
