Social Rented Housing: Freedom of Information

Volume 495: debated on Monday 6 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what recent representations he has received on the application of freedom of information legislation to information held by registered social landlords; and if he will make a statement. (284493)

Communities and Local Government has received one representation on the application of the freedom of information legislation to registered social landlords.

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 only applies to those public authorities listed in the Act. Local authorities are listed, but registered social landlords are not, and are therefore not subject to the Act.
