Volume 569: debated on Monday 21 October 2013

22. What steps he is taking to promote the take-up of the community rights introduced by the Localism Act 2011. (900571)

Will the Minister explain how his Department is providing information, guidance and funding to help community groups in my constituency to exercise their rights?

Yes. The Department has so far made £60 million available to communities to support them in taking up their community rights. I advise the hon. Gentleman to advise his constituents to look at the booklet we have published, “You’ve got the power”, and—more likely—at the website, mycommunityrights.
