§ Mr. Cartwright
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has yet agreed with local authority associations the text of regulations to be made under clause 25 of the Housing and Building Control Bill; and when he expects the regulations to come into effect.
§ Sir George Young
If the hon. Member is referring to the right to repair for secure tenants, my right hon. Friend hopes to issue draft regulations for consultation shortly. He also intends to seek views on the appropriate lead time to enable landlords to implement the regulations once their final form is settled.
