§ Mr. Rossi
asked the Attorney-General how long the papers relating to the Greater London Council and the Novo and Second Genesis housing associations have been in the hands of the Director of Public Prosecutions; and when a decision will be reached as to whether or not prosecutions will be instituted.
§ The Attorney-General
Inquiries into the activities of the Second Genesis Housing Association began in September last year and a report is anticipated shortly. No inquiries have been commenced in respect of Novo, but in the light of statements made in a recent television programme and recent newspaper reports I have now referred that matter also to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
