Housing: Multiple Occupation

Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what assessment her Department has made of the work of local authorities' co-ordinators of regulatory services in relation to their role in monitoring the licensing of houses in multiple occupation. (139685)

The Department agreed a programme of work for the local authorities' co-ordinators of regulatory services (LACORS) for 2005-06. The programme has been delivered as agreed. It did not specifically include any remit to monitor individual local authorities' performance in implementation of the licensing regime. Communities and Local Government is presently working with LACORS to agree a programme of work in 2007-08.
