Home Information Packs: Enforcement

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 10 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what recent representations she has received from the Royal Institute for Chartered Surveyors on the enforceability of home information pack regulations; what response she has made; and how she plans to enforce the regulations. (154076)
