Marianne Zierau, Tenant Services Authority

Dear Mr Gill

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request.

You have requested information about the number of times in the last 24
months that the TSA has directed an RSL to pursue recovery of sums
relating to a Schedule 1 breach and of the outcome of such cases.

I can confirm that the TSA has powers to direct an RSL to pursue
recovery where a Schedule 1 breach is proven. However, RSLs are
independent private organisation with a committee or board of management
made up of volunteers who have overall responsibility for the work of
the organisation. It is therefore the responsibility of the individual
RSL to ensure that monies and losses are recovered where relevant and
the TSA would only exercise its power if necessary.

On this background I can inform you that in the last 24 months the TSA
has not directed an RSL to pursue recovery of monies or losses in cases
where a Schedule 1 breach is proven.

I hope this information is useful to you.

Final comments

If you are dissatisfied with my response you may request an internal
review. To do this you should write to Claer Lloyd-Jones, Executive
Director of Corporate Services at the address given at the top of this
letter. You should make your request for review no later than 40
working days from the date you received this letter. Please note,
however, that a review can only look at how I have dealt with your
Freedom of Information request; it cannot deal with any other kinds of
complaints. If you remain dissatisfied after you have gone through our
appeal process, then you may contact the Information Commissioner at
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.

Yours sincerely
