asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he anticipates being able to publish the report, findings and recommendations of the committee which he established to consider problems arising over the management of blocks of private flats and matters of management, maintenance, service charges and related issues and the circumstances of long lease holders of flats whose common services are managed at their expense by an agent appointed by their landlord.

I refer my hon. Friend to the answer given today to my hon. Friend the Member for Westminster, North (Mr. Wheeler).

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has received the report of the committee on the management of privately-owned blocks of flats, chaired by Mr. Edward Nugee, QC; and if he will make a statement.

I have now received the report, which is being published today, and I have placed copies in the Library. My right hon. Friend and I are extremely grateful to the committee for the work it has done and the way it has carried out its tasks. The report makes many recommendations, and we will consider these in detail as quickly as possible.
