asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether his Department advised the Greater London Council that the rents for flats in Stranraer Way, Islington, NI, having been first determined under the Housing Finance Act, could not, pending consideration by the rent scrutiny board, be revised downwards; and, if it did, on what provisions in the Act this advice was based.
There is no record of any such advice. But I refer my hon. Friend to the reply he was given on 19th December—[Vol. 883, c. 601.]—and to subsequent correspondence.
