HC Deb 04 July 1978 vol 953 c131W
Mr. Ovenden

Mr. Armstrong

I have been looking into this proposal but from inquiries I have made I am satisfied that the numbers would be very small and quite unreliable as a basis for estimating either the total number of lettings under which occupiers are granted the right to share accommodation without the right of exclusive occupation or trends in such lettings.
