Social Sector Working Party

Volume 497: debated on Tuesday 13 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the answer of 7 July 2009, Official Report, column 699W, whether the concerns raised at the meeting with the representatives of the London Leasehold Officers' Forum on 12 August 2009 will be included in the agenda for the next meeting of the Social Sector Working Party. (289376)

It was agreed at the Social Sector Working Party meeting held on 20 January that the most appropriate way forward in respect of section 152 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 was to allow the Working Party the opportunity to comment on the associated draft regulations when they were available. A copy was sent to them and comments were received from one member of the Working Party which will be taken into account.

A copy was also sent to the representatives of the London Leasehold Officers' Forum following concerns raised at the meeting on 12 May. Comments from both groups will be taken into account when finalising the regulations.
