Mr Betts, the MP for Sheffield South East, was re-elected as chair of the committee in a secret ballot yesterday, beating off challengers including fellow Labour MP David Lammy.

He said the Grenfell Tower disaster “raises issues for potential review” but the committee would not “seek to duplicate matters being looked at by the public inquiry”.

“There are issues, for example, regarding the effectiveness of building and fire safety regulations which the committee, once formed, may wish to consider,” he added.

Details of its work will be announced once the other members have been appointed by MPs.

The committee takes primary responsibility for parliamentary scrutiny of the government’s housing policy.
