HC Deb 04 February 1971 vol 810 c455W
Mr. Miscampbell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many local authorities in Lancashire have sought permission to sell council houses.

Mr. Channon

In June last year my right hon. Friend removed restrictions on the number of local authority houses that might be sold in the Merseyside and South-East Lancashire conurbations. Since then, all Lancashire authorities have been free to sell as many of their houses as they think fit.
