§ Mr. John Fraser
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he intends to make an order to transfer the Greater London Council's housing estates to the London boroughs; and, if so, when.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
As he is required to do by the London Government Act 1963, my right hon. Friend made an order on 6 March transferring, from 1 April 1980, GLC housing in their areas to the 21 London boroughs and 24 district councils which, jointly with the GLC, had requested transfer. The order will be laid before Parliament very shortly.
