Mr Redwood’s intervention during the debate on High Streets, 16 October

Mr John Redwood (Wokingham) (Con): Given the impact of the internet on shopping habits, does the Minister agree that councils have to work with their local town centres to maximise their use, which would include office use and leisure use, as well as shopping use?

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (Brandon Lewis): My right hon. Friend makes a good point. I agree and will come to that in a few moments.
