asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has received any complaints about timesharing tenancy schemes; and if he has any proposals to amend the law as this relates to tenancy rights.

My hon. Friend the Member for Chelsea (Mr. Scott) expressed concern about the planning aspects of a particular scheme in his constituency, and if existing planning controls are shown to be inadequate, we shall consider whether any amendment would be justified. Tenants in blocks of flats for which a time-sharing scheme is proposed enjoy rights under the Protection from Eviction Act 1977 and under the terms of their agreement with the landlord. Moreover, those who are regulated tenants also have full security of tenure under the Rent Act 1977.
