20 April 2018
On 29 September 2016 the Office for National Statistics (ONS) confirmed that registered social landlords (RSLs) in Wales had been re-classified as Public Non-financial Corporations for the purpose of the UK national accounts and other ONS economic statistics. Welsh RSLs had previously been classified as private non-financial corporations.
The purpose of the Regulation of Registered Social Landlords (Wales) Bill is to reduce central and local government controls over RSLs so that the ONS can review its classification of RSLs and return them to the private sector.
Stage 3 consideration will take place in plenary on 24 April 2018.
