§ Mr. Murphy
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will now make regulations under paragraph 21(2) of schedule 19 to the Housing Act 1980 setting down criteria for the certification of tenants' associations.
§ Sir George Young
Informal guidelines were issued to the members of rent assessment panels in October 1980. I am placing a copy in the Library. I am not aware that any difficulties are arising in their application, and I do not at present consider it is necessary to use this reserve power to make regulations specifying the criteria.
