In response to the publication of the Social Housing White Paper, Fiona MacGregor, Chief Executive of the Regulator of Social Housing said:
We welcome the publication of the White Paper and its vision for a social housing sector which values and responds to the voices of tenants.

Notes to editors
The Regulator of Social Housing promotes a viable, efficient and well-governed social housing sector able to deliver homes that meet a range of needs. It does this by undertaking robust economic regulation focusing on governance, financial viability and value for money that maintains lender confidence and protects the taxpayer. It also sets consumer standards and may take action if these standards are breached and there is a significant risk of serious detriment to tenants or potential tenants.
