As to the housing boom to come, it is interesting to note the old pals' act now going on between the Housing Corporation and English Partnerships, which look set to undertake many joint projects. In the days of his super-ministry of environment, transport and the regions, John Prescott invented and championed the idea of regional development authorities.

These days, the nine authorities fall under the remit of the Department of Trade and Industry, rather than the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister. No self-respecting secretary of state or Whitehall department loses organisations without compensating expansion. Hence the growing link between EP and HC. How long before it is called EPHC?
