HC Deb 13 December 1999 vol 341 c71W
Mr. Oaten

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what plans his Department has to reform the voting rights of council tenants under large-scale voluntary transfers. [102063]

Mr. Mullin

[holding answer 9 December 1999]: None. Although a ballot is not a statutory requirement, the best way of assessing the level of tenant support for a proposed transfer is a properly conducted formal ballot of all secure and introductory tenants who will be affected.
