Answer for Housing Corporation/English Partnership

Answered By: 
The Mayor

It is not for me to make any such proposal: that is a decision for the Secretary of State. There is no reason why it should affect my new powers with regard to the Housing Corporation's budget. However, it is too early to be clear what the responsibilities will be in London for the rest of Communities England's budget.
