asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has given his consent to the sale of 253 Greater London Council-owned flats in the London borough of Lambeth to the London borough of Wandsworth; and what will be the difference between the market value of the properties and the price which the Greater London Council will receive for them.
Applications have been received from the GLC in respect of some of the flats; I understand others will be made shortly. No consent has yet been given.
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the circumstances in which he will allow the Greater London Council to dispose of its housing property to a borough council other than the borough council in whose area the property lies.
Such consent would only be given in exceptional circumstances.
