§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress has been made in carrying out the undertakings to monitor the effect of transferring the responsibility for adaptations of council owned housing from county to district authorities as set out in the Department of the Environment circular 39/78; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
I am considering, with Ministers in the Department of Health and Social Security and the Welsh Office, how best to monitor the effectiveness of the revised working arrangements set out in DOE Circular 59/78, which have now been in operation for just under a year. The local authority associations will be consulted shortly.
