HC Deb 13 July 1922 vol 156 cc1447-8
42. Mr. MYERS

asked the Prime Minister the composition of the Committee that is to be set up to consider the question of the continuance and amendment of the Rent Restrictions Act which expires in June, 1923?


asked the Minister of Health if he can now state the composition of the Committee which is to be appointed to investigate the effect of the Increase of Rent and Mortgage Interest (Restrictions) Act; when it will commence its sittings; and, more especially, whether sufficient secretarial assistance will be attached to it to enable detailed examination to be made of the many points connected with the issue involved which may be brought to the notice of the Committee, either through Members of Parliament or direct from the general public?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Alfred Mond)

The composition of the Committee is not yet complete, but I hope to make an announcement at a very early date. The point referred to by the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne will be borne in mind.

Colonel NEWMAN

Will the right hon. Gentleman see to it that societies which can really speak for the average man should have a place on this Committee?


I think the societies would do better by appearing to give evidence.
