The draft Housing Bill, to be published in the next few weeks, will make clear how the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister proposes to take forward the proposals contained in the consultation paper on the selective licensing of private landlords. The Bill will be subject to further consultation and parliamentary scrutiny and a summary of the responses to the earlier consultation will be published as part of the package accompanying the Bill.
