In the reorganisation of the cabinet, Greg Clark, MP for Tunbridge Wells, has been selected as secretary of state for Communities and Local Government.

Before the general election, Mr. Clark was Minister of State for universities, science and cities. Prior to this, he was financial secretary to the Treasury and previously the Minister of State for decentralisation.

Alan Ward, Chairman of the Residential Landlords Association (RLA), responded to the announcement: “The RLA looks forward to working with the new secretary of state in what will be a challenging but vital portfolio.

“As the only housing tenure that is growing, supporting and encouraging the army of individuals that make up the vast bulk of the country’s landlords will be critical to Mr. Clark meeting his ambitions for housing.

“Key to this will be a pro-growth regulation, planning and taxation system that provides the safe, legal and secure homes to rent the RLA has long been calling for.”1
