The Government published "Local Decisions: a fairer future for social housing" on 22 November, setting out a range of proposed reforms and seeking views; the consultation period closed on 17 January and approximately 700 responses have been received. A summary of the responses to consultation will be published on the Department's website shortly. We intend to do so earlier than the three month deadline from end of consultation set out in the code of practice on consultation. We will place a copy in the Library of the House. Individual responses will be made available on request, unless respondents have asked that they be treated as confidential.
