HC Deb 24 February 1920 vol 125 c1490
63. Captain REDMOND

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether it is the intention of the Government to renew the Rent Restrictions Acts; and, if so, whether he will favourably consider the extension of the Act so as to include tenants whose rents exceed £52 per year and who are at present subjected to capricious eviction at the hands of landlords engaged in house profiteering?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Dr. Addison)

The Committee which, as was announced by the Leader of the House on Wednesday last, has been set up to consider the operation of the Rent Restriction Acts will no doubt consider this aspect of the matter amongst others.
