To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what representations he has received from English local authorities on the effect of UK withdrawal from the EU; and if he will make a statement.

Mr Marcus Jones

The Secretary of State and the department has a positive working relationship with local authorities and engages with them on a wide range of policies both at the ministerial and official level.

The Secretary of State recognises the value that local authorities can add to the work the government is carrying out on identifying the effects of the UK’s exit from the European Union and will continue to engage with them as we prepare for the UK’s exit.
