To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what plans he has to introduce a referrals unit for complaints to the Standards Board for England. [101220]

Provisions in the Local Government Bill will allow the Standards Board flexibility to introduce other arrangements for the efficient handling of misconduct allegations.
