To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, for what reason it is not a conflict of interest for a board member of the Social Housing Regulator to be the director of a company that is contracted to provide repair services to housing associations that the regulator regulates.

As set out in Sections 92N and 92P of the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008 (as amended), the Regulator must maintain a register of interests of its board members and have arrangements for dealing with any potential conflict of interests appropriately. This was the same when the Regulator was operating as the Regulation Committee of the Homes and Communities Agency. These arrangements are published in the board’s Terms of Reference and Standing Orders, which is available here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/748602/Board_Terms_of_Ref_and_Standing_Orders.pdf
