§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will consider authorising local authorities to employ a small number of extra staff to provide an at cost service to facilitate council house exchanges which are in the public and tenants' interests; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Freeson
Ways in which council house exchanges could be facilitated are being considered as part of the general review of housing management. I will see that my hon. Friend's suggestion is examined.
