I worked in East End housing from 1954 to 1970 and, in the London County Council of the period, there was no ''sons and daughters' allocation scheme. They could only inherit a flat, on a tenancy transfer, if the sole tenant, usually the widowed mother, died while they were living there. This common practice was included, as a statutory right in the Tenants Charter of 1980.
