TSA (and other quangos) - fate announced

It was not a very well-kept secret after being leaked in Inside Housing. But the Cabinet Office list is out (pdf available) and it officially announces the Tenant Services Authority is being scaled back and absorbed into the Homes and Communities Agency.

The list says:

No longer an NDPB - Abolish body. Regulatory functions passed to Homes and Communities Agency. Independent economic regulation safeguarded. Consumer regulation slimmed down

While a focus on financial viability and governance is welcome, there will need to be adequate safeguards for residents.
