HC Deb 28 June 1971 vol 820 c31W
Mr. James Hill

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will issue a circular to local authorities advising them to honour existing negotiations and allow council tenants who had agreed to purchase their homes to complete the purchase contract.

Mr. Amery

No. Local authorities should themselves be the judges of the extent to which the public faith has been committed by their predecessors in office and act accordingly.
