§ Mr. Llew Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what plans he has to introduce legislation to provide for the compulsory inclusion of tenants on the boards of housing associations. 
§ Mr. Clappison
The appointment of board members to housing associations is for individual associations to determine in accordance with their rules. The Government encourage associations to involve tenants in all aspects of the management of their associations, but they do not consider it appropriate to legislate for the inclusion on the board members from any single interest group.
