Mark Prisk at ARCH

On Tuesday 11 June, ARCH held its first housing reception in the House of Commons.


Kindly hosted by MP for Battersea Jane Ellison, ARCH members had the opportunity to meet and talk with Housing Minister Mark Prisk, Shadow Housing Minister Jack Dromey and Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Communities and Local Government Don Foster.

In a packed room both Mark Prisk and Jack Dromey acknowledged the excellent work done by councils, and the importance of ring fencing housing finance and in freeing up disused land to build new homes to remedy the housing shortage.


It was an enjoyable event with the ARCH executive team attending including Councillor Paul Ellis, the ARCH Chair. ARCH is hoping to hold such events in the future in order to raise ARCH's profile and to lobby for the best deal for councils and their tenants.
