HC Deb 03 July 1985 vol 82 cc153-4W
Mr. Soames

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps Her Majesty's Government are taking further to encourage the sale of council houses.

Mr. Gow

My right hon. Friend and I keep the progress of council house sales under regular review. Sales are continuing at a rate in excess of 100,000 a year. I am considering whether further encouragement might be given to tenants of flats to exercise the right to buy.
