HC Deb 11 March 1958 vol 584 cc35-6W
87. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs to what extent adjacent local authorities have adopted pooling or reciprocal schemes designed to meet the more urgent cases needing rehousing, irrespective of local authority boundaries.

Mr. H. Brooke

Local authorities are entirely responsible for the selection of their tenants, and they are not required to tell me of any reciprocal or pooling schemes. While I understand that some reciprocal arrangements exist, I doubt whether the pooling of tenancies would be considered practicable by any local authority.
