HC Deb 09 February 1979 vol 962 c354W
Mr. Shersby

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why the investigation under section 19 of the Housing Act 1974 into the affairs of the Auriol Housing Foundation has been proceeding for nearly one year; when he expects the investigation to be completed; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Armstrong

The Housing Corporation expects to conclude its investigation by April 1979. The length of the inquiry reflects its complexity and the need to allow adequate time for the committee of the foundation and other persons concerned to provide information, and to be given an opportunity to comment upon findings at the various stages of the investigation.
