HC Deb 10 April 1922 vol 153 c41
79. Sir R. CLOUGH

asked the Minister of Health whether he is prepared to make an inquiry into the alleged profiteering in furnished cottages, with the object of promoting legislation should such be deemed essential?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Alfred Mond)

This matter was inquired into by Lord Salisbury's Committee, and the Increase of Rent etc. Act of 1920 makes, in Sections 9 and 10, provisions against profiteering in furnished lettings, to which I would refer the hon. Member. I therefore do not think that? there is any need for a further inquiry into the general case.
