Home Inspectors

Volume 458: debated on Tuesday 13 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will make a statement on the suspension of the two consultants employed by her Department in relation to the regulation of home inspectors; and what communications her Department has had with the (a) Office of Government Commerce and (b) National Audit Office on the matter. (114491)

The Department looked into this matter and concluded that it would not be using these consultants’ services any further. The NAO are now conducting an inquiry into the role played by the consultants in question.

All three certification schemes approved have been assessed by a panel with the independent chair nominated by OGC, without the involvement of the consultants referred to.
