HC Deb 06 December 1978 vol 959 c679W
43. Mr. Hugh Jenkins

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the likely effect upon housing of the proposed tranfer of housing responsibilities from the Greater London Council to the London boroughs.

Mr. Freeson:

I have not yet received a submission from the GLC and the boroughs concerned setting out the proposed terms of transfer and the extent of stock to be transferred, and until the many remaining uncertainties have been resolved I am unable to say what the likely effects would be. However, I have made it clear to the GLC that any arrangements must protect the interests of the staff and tenants concerned and that tenant mobility, which the GLC estates have in the past provided, must be maintained.
