HC Deb 03 July 1986 vol 100 cc593-4W
Mr. Mikardo

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what guidance his Department has given to the London residuary body about whether it is a public or private landlord.

Mr. Tracey

Schedule 13 to the Local Government Act 1985 (which was amended by schedule 2 to the Housing (Consequential Provisions) Act 1985) sets out how the residuary bodies are to be treated for purposes of various enactments. No specific guidance as to the role of the London residuary body as a landlord has been considered necessary.
