To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what recent representations he has received about the statutory provisions applying to residents who wish to let out a room or rooms in their home; and if he has any plans to reform the law.

The Department receives the occasional letter from hon. Members and the public about the statutory provisions applying to residents who wish to let out a room or rooms in their home. Changes were made in the Housing Act 1988 which completely deregulated such lettings. We have no plans to make any further changes to the legislation.
