§ Sir K. Joseph
I beg to move, in page 31, line 19 to leave out subsection (4) and to insert:(4) The Greater London Council shall submit to the Minister by such date, if any, as the Minister may at any time after 1st April 1965 require and in any event by not later than 1st April 1970 a programme for any transfers of housing accommodation vested in that Council such as are mentioned in subsection (3) (b) of this section which they propose to make and have not yet made; and the Minister may at any time after 1st April 1965 require any London borough council to submit a similar programme for such transfers of accommodation vested in them.This Amendment is in compliance with an undertaking in Standing Committee which, I think, satisfied most hon. Members who had been urging that the G.L.C. should be under an obligation to initiate, at a fixed time, its programme of transferring some of its housing stock to the London boroughs or to boroughs outside Greater London in which the houses are situated. The Amendment requires the Council to present its programme not later than 1st April, 1970.
§ Amendment agreed to.
