Keeping the housing crash secret

Council of Mortgage Lenders stops releasing arrears and BTL data

Until last year, it was possible to download data on arrears and the buy to let market for free from the Council of Mortgage Lenders website. Now, the data is restricted to members only. I wonder why they changed their data access policies. Do they have anything to hide, like for example, rapidly rising arrears rates?
