§ 74. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Prime Minister whether his attention had been drawn to the hardship which was inflicted on leaseholders of property whose leases were ending owing to the cost of carrying out dilapidations at the present time on account of the increased cost of materials and labour; and whether the Government proposed to bring in legislation on the subject or deal with it in any other way?
§ The ATTORNEY-GENERAL (Sir G. Hewart)
My right hon. Friend has asked 1014 me to reply to this question. My attention had not hitherto been drawn to the hardship referred to, nor am I aware of the extent of it. But I will make inquiries. It is evidently a matter which deserves in vestigation.
