HC Deb 12 April 1978 vol 947 c451W
21. Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he proposes to introduce legislation to make available more private rented accommodation.

Mr. Freeson

I do not think that the number of private rented homes can be increased overall by legislation, but we are looking at the rate of decline in quantity and quality in our review of the Rent Acts.
