§ Mr. Shersby
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress is being made with his Department's priority estates project.
§ Mr. Stanley
My Department has today published "Priority Estates Project 1982: a summary of aims and progress". This very valuable report by Anne Power, one272W of the Department's consultants for this project, describes how three difficult to let estates in Bolton, Hackney and Lambeth are being turned round and made much more acceptable to tenants. The report is being made available to all local authorities and copies have been placed in the Library. I hope it will be widely read and acted upon.
