HC Deb 26 October 1979 vol 972 c321W
Mr. Skinner

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, in the light of the concern among council tenants throughout the United Kingdom over the non-implementation of the Housing Bill of the previous Administration, whether he intends to introduce similar provisions; and whether the cost of a further "Tenants' Charter" can be justified.

Mr. Stanley

Yes. The Government will introduce a tenants' charter as part of their forthcoming Housing Bill. The proposed provisions of the tenants' charter are set out in a consultation paper, copies of which have been placed in the Library of the House. We consider the cost to be fully justified.
