§ Mr. John Fraser
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will introduce in the current Session of Parliament legislation to amend the Rent Acts in relation to registered rents.
§ Mr. Gow
We introduced various measures to stimulate the provision of private rented accommodation in the Housing Act 1980. My right hon. Friend is considering what further steps could be taken to encourage landlords to meet the demand for homes to rent. However, he has no plans to introduce legislation on this subject in the current Session.
