HC Deb 14 November 1979 vol 973 c658W
56. Mr. Durant

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what has been the response to the consultation paper issued on 15 October on the tenants' charter.

Mr. Stanley

Consultation is continuing, but the charter has been generally welcomed.

Mr. Dobson

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why he does not propose to apply the proposed provisions of the tenants' charter outlined in his Department's consultation document to tenants of the Property Services Agency and all other Government and Crown tenants.

Mr. Stanley

The tenants' charter will confer statutory rights on tenants of housing provided by public sector landlords in their capacity as housing authorities, associations or trusts. I shall be considering comments received on the consultation paper about the position of other tenants in the public sector.
