HC Deb 06 December 1978 vol 959 cc672-3W
5. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has received the plans of the London borough of Brent to increase participation of the tenants and householders in managing their own homes; and whether he intends to approve them.

Mr. Freeson:

Yes. I am well aware of Brent's imaginative schemes for tenants' consultation, co-operatives, tenancy agreements and joint estate management. They are examples of what I would like other authorities to do. My Department issued a consultation paper last Friday about our forthcoming legislation to give tenants more say in the management of their homes.
