To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether the London borough of Greenwich has applied for permission to run a portable discount scheme for local authority tenants in 1990–91.

[holding answer 21 June 1990]: The London borough of Greenwich's bid for resources under the 1990–91 homelessness initiative originally included proposals for a portable discount scheme. This element of the bid was subsequently withdrawn by the council. There is, however, no reason why the council should not consider running a portable discount scheme without such special funding, using its own resources.
