§ Mr. Murphy
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representation he has received regarding extending the right-to-buy opportunity to tenants of housing associations.
§ Mr. Gow
Since the autumn last year, over 100 letters have been received in favour of an extension of the right to buy to the tenants of charitable housing associations, and about 200 against such an extension. In addition, some 30 letters have been received requesting an extension of the right to buy to housing association tenants where the landlord does not own the freehold.
