§ Mr. Corbyn
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what action he is taking to protect the tenancies of residents on the Archway road, London N6, in view of the proposed sale of Department-owned properties; and if he will make a statement.124W
§ Mr. Chope
[holding answer 14 October 1991]: The Archway Road Tenants Association made an offer in May 1991 for the Department's surplus properties on the Archway road. This was unacceptable because the ARTA's offer was well below the district valuer's valuation with sitting tenants. Subsequently two housing associations expressed an interest in buying the properties on a tenanted basis. Exploratory talks between the housing associations and the district valuer are continuing.
