This is an operational matter for the Audit Commission, and I will ask the chief executive of the Audit Commission to write to the hon. Member direct.
Letter from Steve Bundred, dated 14 January 2010:
Your Parliamentary Question outlined above has been passed to me to reply.
The Audit Commission inspected Newham Homes Landlord Services in October 2006. The report of the inspection was published in January 2007. The service was judged as ‘good’/2 star with promising prospects. The service is due to be re-inspected under the arm’s length management organisation (ALMO) inspection programme in February 2010.
A copy of this letter will be placed in Hansard.
