Mr. Greenway

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will seek powers to give owner-occupiers immediate rights to occupy the whole of their houses if they wish

Mr. Stanley

I would draw my hon. Friend's attention to the provisions of the Housing Act 1980, which have already speeded up and simplified repossession procedures for lettings by resident landlords entered into after its provisions came into force. These are described in the Department's booklet "Letting Rooms in Your Home", a copy of which I am sending to him.
