To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, if he will ask the Social Housing Regulator to publish details of the enquiries it made into the accuracy of the information provided by Clarion Housing Group during the in-depth assessment process prior to its decision to upgrade that organisation to a G1-rating on 28 March 2018.

On 28 March 2018 the Regulator published its latest regulatory judgement for Clarion Housing Group following an in-depth assessment, which gave the Regulator assurance that Clarion’s leadership and governance arrangements are sufficient to support the delivery of its objectives and adequately control the organisation.

While Parliament sets the framework within which the Regulator operates, the Government cannot interfere in individual regulatory decisions and therefore I cannot direct the Regulator to publish specific details of its investigation. However, the Regulator has published the reasons for its judgement here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/694487/Clarion_Housing_Group_Limited_RJ_20180318_2.pdf.
