HC Deb 22 February 1980 vol 979 cc606-7W
39. Mr. Gwilym Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will take steps to improve the mobility of public sector tenants by setting up a Government-financed national pool of houses to let; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Stanley

No. The Housing Bill includes provision for the Secretary of State to contribute to the cost of housing transfer and exchange schemes as well as other measures to improve mobility. I am considering with the local authority associations ways in which the mobility of public sector tenants can be improved.
