HC Deb 21 July 1977 vol 935 c689W
Sir George Young

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what plans he has to introduce legislation to enable a local authority compulsorily to acquire properties in a housing action area as the agent for a nominated housing association.

Mr. Armstrong

None. A local authority acquiring property compulsorily in a housing action area already has power under which it may dispose of such property to a housing association.
