I must be honest – I hadn’t. But then, I was not aware of Alok Sharma, either. To clarify, Dominic Raab will be the 16th Housing Minister since 1997 and was given the role of Housing Minister in the most recent Cabinet re-shuffle. Mr. Sharma seemed to have little time to achieve anything, though he had started his ‘big conversations’ to obtain the views of 1,000 social tenants. He seemed to give no thought to the private rented sector, so may not be a great loss.
