HC Deb 14 November 1979 vol 973 cc651-2W
27. Mr. Skinner

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he now has any plans to discuss with housing associations and private landlords the sale of houses at half market value to sitting tenants.

Mr. Stanley

We have set up a working party, on which the National Federation of Housing Associations and the Housing Corporation are represented, which is considering the implications for housing associations of the Government's home ownership policies. As far as private landlords are concerned, I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Cannock (Mr. Roberts) on 11 June 1979.—[Vol. 968, c. 57.]
