What progress he has made on the Towns Fund.

Answered on

Our £3.6 billion Towns Fund will play a vital role in supporting our country’s economic recovery, investing in housing, skills, technology, culture and town centres, as we move beyond the immediate covid-19 response. We have recently provided accelerated funding to help towns respond to the immediate challenges of COVID-19, including £750,000 to Leyland.

We will be announcing the first cohort of Town Deals this Autumn, and hope to agree all deals by next Spring.
