asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, further to his answer, Official Report,26 November, column 535, if he will consult the tenants of the properties referred to before reaching a decision; and how far below the market price and construction price the Greater London Council wishes to sell these properties.

The principle that the Greater London Council's housing should be transferred to the borough and district councils was established in the London Government Act 1963, and the disposal to a single authority of cross-boundary estates would be a natural extension of that policy; I therefore have no proposals to consult the tenants.
