HC Deb 28 October 1981 vol 10 c391W
Mr. Iain Mills

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will seek to legislate to limit annual increases in service charges made on rented accommodation.

Mr. Stanley:

Schedule 19 to the Housing Act 1980 already imposes limitations on the amount of a variable service charge payable by the tenant of a flat. The service charges provisions of schedule 19 are described in the Department's booklet "Service Charges in Flats" a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend.
