§ Mr. Chris Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list all those properties currently vested in the London residuary body for which he has refused consent to its sale to the relevant London borough under section 123 of the Local Government Act 1972; and if he will state the date and the reasons for refusal in each case.
§ Mr. Heathcoat-Amory
An application by the London residuary body for consent to the sale of 67–69 Cowcross street, London EC1 to the London borough of Islington was refused on 26 February 1990 for the reasons given in my letter of the same date to the hon. Member. No other properties currently vested in the London residuary body have been refused for disposal under section 123 of the Local Government Act 1972.
