E-mail from the Clerk of the Committee to the
Department for Communities and Local Government
With reference to the attached, the last sentence
in the answer to Q2 reads: 'However, for further assistance and
in the light of the Committee's concern on the point we now intend
to get in touch with the Commission and seek any views'.
The Committee would be grateful to know (i) when
the Audit Commission will be consulted and (ii) what is the expected
response time from the Commission?
Please could you get back to me by Monday 19 November,
at the latest.
