The debate will focus on MHCLG spending on local government, children's services, and housing and planning - covered in this briefing paper in sections 2, 3 and 4 respectively. Spending in all of these areas is in England only, so this pack focuses primarily on policy in England.

The 2019-20 Main Estimate includes a day-to-day budget of £7,806 million (the largest element being grants for local government) and an investment budget of £10,686 million (mostly for housing).
