Robert Jenrick – 2020 Comments on Funding for Local Councils

The comments made by Robert Jenrick, the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, on 22 October 2020.

Since the start of the pandemic, we have backed local councils with the funding they need to support their communities, protect vital services and recover lost income.

This extra £1 billion funding will ensure that councils have the resources that they need over the winter and continue to play an essential role on the front line of our response to the virus while protecting the most vulnerable and supporting local businesses.
