§ Mr. Pendry
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is now in a position to make a statement on the future of Hattersley and Carrbrook, Manchester, overspill estates in the Stalybridge and Hyde constituency, following his discussions with the appropriate authorities concerned.
§ Mr. Channon
I would refer the hon. Member to the Department's Circular 107/73, "Housing Accommodation Outside a Local Authority's Area", which asks the local authorities concerned to consult together and seek ways of overcoming whatever difficulties may have arisen or might arise. I hope that any difficulties will be resolved in the best interests of the tenants concerned.
