HC Deb 03 February 1970 vol 795 c200
18. Mr. Peter Walker

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government when he expects to receive the Report of the Cohen Committee on Housing Associations and Societies.

Mr. Greenwood

I hope during the course of this year.

Mr. Walker

Will the right hon. Gentleman do everything possible to speed up the publication of this report, which is eagerly awaited by the whole of the voluntary housing movement?

Mr. Greenwood

Certainly. This is, however, an extremely complex problem and the Committee is having to review the whole structure and financing of the voluntary housing movement. I share the hon. Gentleman's anxiety and I know that Sir Karl Cohen shares it, too.
