§ Mr. Bidwell
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will consider bringing in legislation to extend the Housing Acts for Great Britain passed since 1957 to Northern Ireland.
§ Mr. Concannon
Housing legislation in Northern Ireland is kept under continuous review in the light of the special housing problems there and the policies and legislation operative in Great Britain. For example, I have recently published a proposal for a Draft Housing (Northern Ireland) Order 1976 which parallels to some extent the Housing Act 1974. Copies are available in the House. I am at present considering the law in Northern Ireland in relation to the private rented sector.
