HC Deb 10 May 1978 vol 949 cc546-7W
40. Mr. Michael Spicer

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress he has made in his discussions with local authorities into ways of making easier the transfer of council tenants who wish to move to other areas.

Mr. Shore

I have already urged local authorities to make more provision for mobility in their allocation schemes. I have issued a consultation document setting out some further ideas, and I am awaiting a full report from the Housing Services Advisory Group.
