The work of the House of Commons

Many people are not aware of the diverse range of topics being discussed and reviewed in the House of Commons. This stickie can help you browse some recent work undertaken in the House and also gives some hints and tips for searching the site for issues of interest.

Regulation of Social Housing
    Public Administration Select Committee Inquiry –

Links to recent Library notes (impartial expert notes informing MPs and the public of background information behind topics of interest):

      Paying Housing Benefit direct to tenants in social rented housing - This note explains the Government’s approach to the introduction of direct payments and social landlords’ responses
        Anti-social behaviour in private housing - This note outlines the legal position and available remedies where people find themselves living next door to tenants of private landlords or owner-occupiers who exhibit anti-social behaviour.
          Financial education in schools - This note provides an outline of current arrangements relating to financial education in schools, and notes some recent developments. It covers England only.
          Please note that the Library Notes open as PDFs.

                  Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are incapable of forming such opinions.
