The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for Communities and Local Government,

The advert for Chairman of the CLAE Tony Redmond's replacement states "This high profile role demands...the highest standards of integrity..."

1. Did this apply whilst Redmond was in the role?
2. Who will select Redmond's replacement?
3. How will those people judge that Redmond's replacement has "the highest standards of integrity..."?
4. How will it be made sure that, once in post, Redmond's
replacement adheres to "the highest standards of integrity..."
5. Why does it appear that there was no system at all in place to try to ensure that Redmond adhered to "the highest standards of integrity..."?

Yours faithfully,

Robin Ford

Mark Coram, Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities
