Local Government and Communities Committee 26 February 2020

Agenda: Interests, Decision on Taking Business in Private, Subordinate Legislation, Building Regulations and Fire Safety (Zero-valued Homes)



Welcome to the seventh meeting in 2020 of the Local Government and Communities Committee. I remind everyone present to turn off their mobile phones.

I welcome Jeremy Balfour to the committee. Jeremy has replaced Alexander Stewart, who has taken on a different role in his party. Alexander was with the committee from its inception in 2016. I record the committee’s thanks to him for his service—Jeremy has big boots to fill. I ask Jeremy to indicate whether he has any relevant interests to declare.

I have nothing to declare.

I have something to declare, in particular for this meeting. I have a flat that is rented to a third party and which is affected by the cladding issue.
