HC Deb 10 March 1988 vol 129 c320W
Mr. Blunkett

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received regarding his policy towards the disposal of local authority assets.

Mr. Chope

I frequently receive calls to encourage better management of assets by local authorities, including substantial sales of surplus or under-used properties. I particularly welcome the Audit Commission's recent report on property management, and I commend it to all local authorities.
