HC Deb 05 March 1985 vol 74 cc453-4W
Mr. Kirkwood

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to publish draft regulations under section 17A of the Tenants' Rights Etc. (Scotland) Act 1980 giving details of the scheme to give tenants the right to carry out repairs; when he anticipates the scheme will be implemented; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ancram

Draft regulations were issued to interested organisations for comment on 9 November 1984. The closing date for comments was 31 December 1984. My Department is at present assessing the representations received and I envisage that final regulations will be laid before Parliament once this process has been completed with a view to implementation later in the year.
