HL Deb 28 November 1996 vol 576 cc23-4WA
Lord Dean of Harptree

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they will respond to the recommendations, relating to registered housing associations, contained in the Second Report of the Committee on Standards in Public Life.

The Minister of State, Department of the Environment (Earl Ferrers)

Copies of our response have today been placed in the Library of both Houses. We welcome the broad thrust of the recommendations as they affect the Housing Corporation and housing associations, and in future other social landlords registered with the Housing Corporation. In general, they reflect current government policy.
