HC Deb 02 July 1979 vol 969 c411W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when the forthcoming legislation giving rights to purchase to tenants of local authority owned houses will be extended without qualification to the tenants of housing associations.

Mr. Stanley

We wish to enable all housing associations to sell their dwellings to their tenants. We are still considering how far it would be practical to extend a statutory right to buy to housing association tenants.
