It was reported a couple of weeks ago that Ministers are considering introducing ‘league tables’ for housing associations so that the performance of associations can be ranked.
My first reaction was to think that Ministers should get their act together and publish the Green Paper on the future of housing and housing supply that we have been promised since last September and more recently before Parliament rose for the summer. Parliament rose last week and there is still no sight of the Green Paper.
I desperately hope that Ministers haven’t been wasting their time discussing league tables and other cosmetic measures.
If they have, it will be nothing more than a distraction from the serious business of trying to solve housing affordability and supply crisis.
