HC Deb 13 May 1985 vol 79 c22W
Mr. John Fraser

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, pursuant to the answer of 22 April, Official Report, column 339, if he will list by local authority area the addresses of the 39 cases which have been decided and give his detailed reasons in each case for making or declining to make a determination under paragraph 5 of schedule 1 to the Housing Act 1980, as amended.

Sir George Young

In deciding whether or not to exclude a dwelling from the right to buy under paragraph 5 of schedule 1, my right hon. Friend must consider very detailed evidence, both as to the dwelling's physical characteristics and as to its letting history. A full statement of reasons for all the decisions taken since 26 August 1984 could be provided only with disproportionate effort and expense. I shall, however, write to the hon. Member.
