HC Deb 04 March 1981 vol 1000 cc120-1W
24. Mr. Speller

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in the context of his review of current legislation, he will consider introducing legislation to allow local authorities to reserve a portion of their available housing stock for local residents on the housing list even when this conflicts with provisions of the Housing (Homeless Persons) Act 1977.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

The effect of the provisions of the Housing (Homeless Persons) Act 1977 on housing waiting lists is one of the issues being considered in the review of the Act.
