Question to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government
Her Majesty's Government what assessment have they made of the role of business in reviving high streets.
Answer (Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth)
The Government recognises the crucial role that business plays in reviving high streets. We established the Future High Street Forum in March 2013, consisting of retailers, investors and developers. The Forum provides joint business and Government leadership to enable our high streets to adapt and compete in the face of changing consumer and social trends. The Forum will advise the government in the formation and delivery of policies to support high streets and town centres, in the short and longer term.
