HC Deb 03 July 1989 vol 156 cc61-2W
Mr. Colvin

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has any plans to act on the recommendation in the Glasgow university report "The Nature and Effectiveness of Housing Management in England" to introduce a system of performance indicators for local authority housing management.

Mr. Trippier

My noble Friend the Minister for Housing, Environment and Countryside intends to table an amendment to the Local Government and Housing Bill during Committee stage in another place.

This would enable a performance indication scheme to be put in place in every local authority so that tenants will be able to see—for the first time—how efficient, effective and economical their authority is in managing its housing stock. Precise requirements will be for regulations. We plan to consult widely before introducing the scheme.
