HC Deb 10 February 1992 vol 203 c342W
Mr. Fearn

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make it his policy to give tenant-control initiatives similar status to initiatives such as housing action trusts, the city challenge and estate action schemes when allocating capital funding.

Mr. Key

No. Housing action trusts, estate action and city challenge are all ways of better targeting resources, and tenant management or control of housing estates is one important ingredient in them. It would not be right to treat tenant control in isolation as a means of targeting scarce capital resources: tenants taking on such responsibilities need the support that comes from sound management, strategies and policies.
