Ms Sue Doughty: I have many concerns about what has happened this morning. We have a Minister who says that he has led from the front on green government. All parties welcomed the new phrase of green government that arrived in 1997, recognising that we have a part to play both internationally and locally to have a sustainable environment. Much of what has happened in the past four or five years has been...
Ms Sue Doughty: Listening to the Minister and his explanation was helpful. We do not know how much this will cost and how much work there is to be done.

Ms Sue Doughty: New clause 4 was tabled because we want to extend the same rights of self-management given to leaseholders in blocks of flats to enfranchised owners in estate management schemes.
