Ministers questioned on supply and diversity of housing for older people

11 December 2017

The Communities and Local Government Committee hears from Housing Minister Alok Sharma and Local Government Minister Marcus Jones as part of the housing for older people inquiry.

Committee questions Ministers

MPs have heard from a range of witnesses in previous sessions and will have a chance to put the points raised in their evidence to the Ministers.

Topics covered are likely to include the diversity of older people's housing, maintenance and adaptation of the home, the supply and delivery of housing, barriers to moving and the link between housing and health.

The inquiry is examining whether the housing on offer for older people is sufficiently available and suitable for their needs and, in doing so, consider how older people wish to live.
