To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, pursuant to the Answer of 10 June 2019 to Question 262260 and with reference to the Written Statement of 24 July 2018, HCWS927 on local growth, if he will publish an updated timescale for the public consultation on the design of the UK Shared Prosperity.

The Government recognises the importance of reassuring local areas on the future of local growth funding and will consult widely on the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

We believe leaving the European Union with a deal is the best outcome and remain focused on ensuring a smooth and orderly withdrawal. It is right, however, that we also continue to prepare for all scenarios. Therefore, we continue to review our approach to consulting on the Fund.
