HC Deb 12 March 1981 vol 1000 c407W
Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will seek to amend section 8(3) of the Housing Act 1980 to make a vesting under a will or an intestacy a disposal under that subsection in cases where (a) a company has entered into an agreement to pay the mortgage of a secure tenant in return for the assigning to it of the freehold or lease upon the tenant's death and (b) a similar arrangement has been made by a relative of the secure tenant.

Mr. Stanley

There are at present no plans to do so.
