Answer for Housing Corporation/English Partnership

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My officers work closely and effectively with both the Housing Corporation and English Partnerships to deliver new housing in London. However, it is not my responsibility to ascertain the views of these organisations with regard to their proposed merger into Communities England. If the Assembly wishes to ascertain their views then I would suggest that it asks the agencies directly.
