The government is to monitor councils' progress in introducing best value in housing and tenant participation when assessing housing investment programme cash, housing minister Nick Raynsford told MPs.

He told Alan Whithead, Labour MP for Southampton Test, that the introduction of best value and tenant participation from April this year should ensure that tenants had more influence over the way in which their homes were managed.

'We will be monitoring whether local authorities have introduced compacts, and their performance on tenant parfticipation generally, through this year's annual housing investment programme assessment process. We have also recently commissioned research to monitor how best value in housing and compacts are being introduced and developed,' said the minister.

He added that the government was working closely with the Housing Corporation so that best value and participation compacts was mirrored by housing associations.
