Dear Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government,

From the Conservative 2015 and 2017 Manifesto Pledge for the right to buy housing assocation homes.

1. After a first pilot of the right to buy had completed. Why was it decided to run a another pilot, the Midlands VRTB pilot as a ballot with limited funds.

2. How many applicants where in the first pilot, how many purchased their home, how much was the total cost of the first pilot?

3. Who set the limited funding and allocations to 6000 for the Midlands VRTB pilot?

4. As the Midlands VRTB pilot is still in fund and running until September 2020, who decides on if to run a seconds ballot for the unsuccessful applicants?

5. Will there be any further national right to buy rollout, as pledged in the conservative manifesto?

6. Will the right to buy run alongside the new announced shared owner right to buy?
Yours faithfully,

7. If the right to buy has been cancelled and replaced with the SORB scheme, who decided this breath of the manifesto pledge?

8. When will the SORB scheme details for both new and existing housing assocation tenants be published?

9.
