Mr. Battle

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister if he will list the arm's length management organisations approved to date, broken down by local authority; and which have a specific regeneration remit. [159289]

None of the ALMOs have a specific regeneration remit. The primary objective of all ALMOs is to bring the stock up to the Decent Homes standard and provide a high quality housing management service. The ALMOs work with their local authorities to ensure that the work to achieve Decent Homes is planned and implemented in parallel with other investment, including investment with wider regeneration objectives.
