HC Deb 18 February 1982 vol 18 c215W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will issue guidance to local authorities that in fixing their council rent levels, they should have regard to the fact that certain council tenants are deprived of the right to buy their homes in terms of the Housing Act.

Mr. Stanley

No. The statutory responsibility for fixing the rent payable on particular dwellings lies with each local authority.
