HC Deb 07 April 1971 vol 815 cc150-1W
Mr. Mudd

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what changes he proposes to make in the progression of controlled dwellings into the fair rent sector.

Mr. Peter Walker

The Secretary of State for Wales and I have made the Regulated Tenancies (Conversion from Control) Order, 1971, under our powers in Part III of the Housing Act, 1969. This brings forward from 1st January, 1972, to 1st July, 1971, the date when controlled dwellings of less than £60 rateable value in London and less than £40 elsewhere which come up to the qualifying standard can move into the fair rent sector.
