HC Deb 13 May 1992 vol 207 c127W
25. Mr. Evennett

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what proposals he has for improving the right-to-repair scheme for council tenants.

Sir George Young

The citizens charter proposed a new right-to-repair scheme to replace the existing scheme and provide local authority tenants with a simpler, stronger right to repair for the most urgent types of minor repairs affecting health, safety or crime prevention. The Government will bring forward legislation later this Session to give effect to it. A first round of consultation has been completed and there will be a further round of consultation in due course on the details.
