Below is the text of Mr Major’s written Commons question regarding council house sales, made on 25th July 1979.
Mr. Major asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many local authorities have issued statements declining to sell their housing stock to sitting tenants; whether he will name these authorities; and if he will make a statement.
Mr. Stanley I refer my hon. Friend to my reply earlier today to my hon. Friend the Member for Anglesey (Mr. Best). The specific information requested by the hon. Member is not available.
