HC Deb 27 January 1986 vol 90 c415W
Mr. Lawrence

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make it his policy to introduce further legislation to stimulate the supply of homes to rent in the private sector during the current Parliament.

Sir George Young

The Government hope to introduce measures to encourage the supply of homes for renting in the private sector, though no proposals for any major reform of the existing legislation are likely to be brought forward during the lifetime of this Parliament.
