HC Deb 02 July 1980 vol 987 cc597-8W
56. Miss John Lestor

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has come to any conclusion in his study of the problems of housing, such as council house transfers, involved in job mobility.

Mr. Stanley

The Government's Housing Bill contains several measures which will facilitate labour mobility, and I outlined these in a statement I made in Standing Committee F on 6 March.—[Official Report, Standing Committee F, 6 March 1980, c. 949–51.] The national mobility scheme to which I referred in that statement is being developed in a working group set up in March comprising representatives of the Department, the local authority associations and computer consultants.
