Quango culling

The BBC has a leaked list of quangos that – potentially – the government is planning/considering to abolish. Of interest to housing lawyers:

(a) the Audit Commission (abolish and transfer);

(b) National Tenant Voice (abolished – not sure about that, I thought the Gov. just stopped funding it but didn’t actually abolish it);

(c) Rent Assessment Committees / Residential Property Tribunal Service (transfer into Tribunal Service);

(d) Homes and Communities Agency (still to decide);

(e) Leasehold Advisory Service (still to decide);

(f) TSA (still to decide – again, not too sure about that!)

(g) Law Commission (retain but refocus);

(h) Supreme Court (retain but refocus – I can’t imagine that the Baroness will be happy about this!)

J is a barrister. He considers housing law to be the single greatest kind of law known to humankind and finds it very odd that so few people share this view.
