Social Housing Green Paper promised before Summer Recess 23/05/2018 Labelled as Legislation

In a debate in the House of Commons Housing Minister Dominic Raab promised that the Social Housing Green Paper would be published before Parliament rises for its Summer Recess.


There has been speculation in recent weeks about when the Government would publish the long awaited Social Housing Green Paper first announced by the then Secretary of State Sajid Javid in September 2017.


In responding to a debate on housing and homes on 15 May 2018 the Housing Minister said:


"Our Green Paper on social housing in England is a historic opportunity to address this crucial sector, from landlord-tenant relationships to, frankly, some of the ignorant and offensive stigma that too many social tenants suffer today. This Government-a Conservative Government-are dedicated to eradicating that prejudice, recognising the hard work that so many social tenants put in, valuing the pride that they take in their neighbourhoods and restoring the respect and dignity that they deserve. We will publish that ground-breaking report before the summer recess." (Hansard Volume 641, column 245)


Parliament is due to rise for its Summer Recess on 24 July 2018.
