The Housing Corporation - a Goliath in quangoland - is charged with funding, regulating and promoting housing associations. It can only appoint committee members where the public interest is at risk.
As custodians of public funding, and providers of a basic essential - homes for people in need - housing associations are aware of the dangers of lack of accountability. So much so that their trade association, The National Federation of Housing Associations, has set up an Inquiry into the Governance of Housing Associations.
