asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many Greater London Council properties in each of the 32 London boroughs are to be transferred to each borough.

The Secretary of State has received from the GLC and the appropriate borough councils submissions requesting him to make an order under section 23(3) of the London Govern- ment Act 1963 transferring the number of dwellings shown in each of the following London boroughs:

Barking12,520
Barnett2,910
Bexley500
Bromley6,160

The GLC has also requested transfer of 830 dwellings in the London borough of Newham; and I understand that the Secretary of State is likely to receive a corresponding request from the borough council. The Secretary of State proposes to lay before Parliament shortly an order giving effect to these transfers.In addition, in a few cases where estates are split by borough boundaries, the GLC has applied for consent to convey the remainder of the estates to the boroughs taking transfer of the other dwellings on those estates.
