HC Deb 08 July 1987 vol 119 c161W
Mr. Boateng

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what research his Department is carrying out on the effect on council tenants to transfer their existing tenancy to a private landlord on the quality of management and maintenance of rented property in London, particularly as regards the level of vacancy and the physical condition of the property.

Mr. Waldegrave

[pursuant to his reply, 7 July 1987]: Under our policies, council tenants will be able to judge for themselves which landlord, council or other, offers them the best quality of housing management and maintenance services and to act accordingly.

Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has any plans to submit for further review the price agreed by the London Docklands Development Corporation and the developers of Canary wharf; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Trippier

I shall answer this question shortly.
