HC Deb 19 January 1989 vol 145 c305W
Mr. Soley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether the Government intend to continue with the management agency agreement to take over the running of all housing in new towns.

Mr. Trippier

The management of their rented housing stock is entirely a matter for new town development corporations. The decision to offer a management agency agreement to anyone is taken by the board of the development corporation. The Government have no standing in these matters.
