    I hope they make a better job than they made of the Pressured Area Status which was abused by RSL to cheat tenants out of their right to buy but allowed Council tenants to purchase their homes even if the property was inside the PAS right up to the last day. The council knew that some RSLs had applied for PAS on false and made up information and therefore submitted fraudulent paperwork ,even when it was brought to their notice they turned a blind eye. HRC truth or trust don't go together.
