HC Deb 19 November 1986 vol 105 c235W
17. Mr. Marlow

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what plans he has for giving tenants greater control over their lives.

Mr. John Patten

The Housing and Planning Act 1986 gives public sector tenants a greater say in the future management and ownership of their housing and, by extending the right to buy, enables more tenants to obtain the autonomy of home ownership. In response to the Nugee report we will be introducing legislation to increase the rights of tenants in the private sector.
