LGiU statement on Greg Clark’s DCLG appointment

Jonathan Carr-West, Chief Executive, LGiU said: 

“Eric Pickles was passionate about local government and cared about its potential to do good in the world. At LGiU, we would like to thank him for his continued support and service.

We look forward to working with Greg Clark in his new role as Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. Greg is an excellent choice for the role. His appointment should allow for the integration of Treasury-led devolution with rest of the CLG agenda and also give the Department more impetus.”
