I thank the hon. Gentleman for his comments about the joint report by the two Select Committees, which were chaired by my hon. Friend Helen Hayes and Richard Graham. Since then, five housing associations, in a meeting chaired by Lord Richard Best, have come forward with a proposal for small regional variations in a specific grant with small top-ups that would meet the Select Committees’ proposals and cost the Government no more money. Should not the Government carefully consider that?
