Housing minister Kit Malthouse gets quizzed next week over the Social Housing Green Paper by the Commons Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee.

Released in August, the paper – A new deal for social housing – outlined five principles as the basis for future policy, focusing on expanding housing supply and home ownership, improving quality, and providing effective support for residents and complaint resolution.

In an evidence session set for next Wednesday (Oct 31) from 9.45am at the Commons, the committee will test Malthouse as to how effectively the Green Paper provides mechanisms to resolve the challenges it sets out.

Malthouse can also expect to take questions on the funding needed to build more social housing, the role of the proposed Regulator of Social Housing in this policy environment, and how the perception of social housing as an option of last resort or a ‘springboard’ can be changed.
