star this property answer text <p>As Leader of the House I take very seriously the responsibility incumbent on all Ministers to provide full, timely and comprehensible answers to Questions for Written Answer. This is something I stress regularly to frontbench colleagues and which I will certainly reiterate in the light of the Noble Lord’s question. My office also engage regularly with private offices and Parliamentary teams when issues arise, both proactively and in response to concerns raised by individual members. It is for Ministers, though, to be directly accountable for the content of their answers, which is why I fully support the rule that Ministers must personally sign all answers to members of the House of Lords.</p> more like this

While the focus of the Memorial will be on the persecution and murder of 6 millions European Jews, it will also appropriately represent the experiences of the Roma/Sinti and of all groups persecuted by the Nazis. It is therefore vital that representatives of all victims of Nazi persecution are able to have their say on what the Memorial looks like.</p><p>Once the shortlisted designs are received for the Memorial, the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation will hold exhibitions and consultations all around the United Kingdom, providing all people with an opportunity to connect.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The vast majority of new homes in England are built using traditional brick-and-mortar methods. In its Housing Market Report in October, the National House Building Council stated that timber frame's market share at registration in each of the last five years was as follows:</p><p>2011: 13%<br>2012: 10%<br>2013: 9%<br>2014: 8%<br>2015: 9%</p><p>To increase housing supply, we need a diversified housing market where all firms embrace innovation to become more productive and deliver a better product to the consumer. It is not for government to endorse one building technique or material, including timber frame, over another, as long as building standards are met.</p><p>Instead, we are encouraging market diversification and promoting the use of modern methods of construction through our housing and planning programmes, including Affordable Homes 2016-21, Build to Rent and Housing Zones, and through our National Planning Practice Guidance.</p><p>In October, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government launched the Home Building Fund, which aims to provide further support to builders using modern methods of construction, in addition to custom builders, small and medium-sized builders, and new entrants to the market.</p><p>The Secretary of State and I often meet developers and housebuilders, including those who build homes using traditional methods and those who use modern methods of construction, as well as visiting offsite factories and developments where modern methods of construction are used.</p>
