To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many estates owned by local authorities have held ballots to opt out of local authority control under the Housing Act 1988.

Ballots under the tenants' choice provisions of the Housing Act 1988 are conducted when the alternative landlord has made a formal offer to tenants. Two tenants' choice applications have been made to acquire property, but neither of these has reached the stage of the ballot.
