Abstract: It is well known that a codimension 1 foliation with finite holonomy on a compact manifold must have a bundle-like metric. A counterexample is presented to the higher codimension generalization of this theorem. However, a stronger holonomy restriction (expressed via the Bott connection) is shown to imply the existence of a bundle-like metric.
