§ Mrs. Gorman
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make it his policy to take further powers to prevent undue pressure on tenants of a local authority in relation to their right to determine whether to transfer to alternative landlords; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Chope
My right hon. Friend has no plans to do so. Although some local authorities have sought to dissuade public sector tenants from pursuing their statutory rights under tenants' choice unbiased information and advice is already available to tenants from the Housing Corporation. Next week I will be launching a series of four explanatory videos which the corporation will be ready to show to interested tenants' groups.
