HC Deb 20 July 1970 vol 804 cc27-8W
Mr. Dykes

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what method of advice and consultation with local authorities he intends to follow to achieve the implementation of his recent circular allowing the discretionary sale of council houses to sitting tenants.

Mr. Peter Walker

I think that the circular, of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy, contains sufficient advice to enable each authority to decide for itself how to proceed. I intend also to study by which sales methods local authorities are successful in selling council houses.
