§ Mr. Rooker
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he proposes a warranty scheme for repairs to defects in flats within tower blocks which have been sold under the Housing Act 1980.
§ Mr. Gow
Owners of flats who are eligible for assistance under the Housing Defects Act will receive that assistance by way of repurchase at 95 per cent. of the defect-free value. Reinstatement grants are not available for flats because of the difficulty of reinstating flats individually.
