Ticked Yes
No

2. Freedom of Information can be extended to organisations that undertake ‘functions of a public nature’. You may wish to provide comments on how you consider that RSLs undertake functions of a public nature, for example, with reference to the factors referred to earlier in the consultation paper.

Please enter comments:
RSLs provide a number functions that could be considered to be "of a public nature". I think it is particularly important that RSLs are open to scrutiny particularly at this time when there is so much government funding being made available for building new affordable homes to ensure that value for money is being achieved and that statutory procurement practices are being adhered to.

3. The proposed order would be expected to come into force on 1 April 2018. Do you consider this a reasonable timescale, allowing for preparation for inclusion?
