asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the basis on which he is proposing to use his powers under section 23 of the Housing Act 1980 against the city of Norwich, bearing in mind that the council is now issuing 60 section 10 notices per month and is implementing the Act.
In accordance with section 23(1) of the Act, my right hon. Friend is taking steps to establish whether tenants of Norwich city council have or may have difficulty in exercising the right to buy effectively and expeditiously.
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) what is the record of local authorities in implementing the Housing Act 1980; and how Norwich compares with other authorities;(2) if he will now list the local housing authorities which are issuing section 10 notices under the Housing Act 1980 at a rate less than 60 a month.
I shall answer these questions shortly.
