The implications of the housing secretary's Twitter announcement of a heritage policy review

The housing secretary announced via social media a review of heritage policy in the wake of a fellow minister's approval of the redevelopment of a historic bell foundry. Some observers worry that the move undermines confidence in the government's decision-making and suggest that any review is likely to examine how heritage harm is assessed.
