HC Deb 25 July 1986 vol 102 c567W
Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will issue guidelines to local authorities as to how long they should keep right-to-buy documentation, and as to the circumstances in which such documents should be destroyed; and if he will make a statement.

Sir George Young

This would normally be a matter for local authorities' own discretion; but if the hon. Member is aware of any difficulties perhaps he would write to me.
