HC Deb 29 June 1922 vol 155 cc2325-6
59. Mr. JOHN

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the change in economic conditions which has come about since the percentage increase of rent was fixed under the Rent Restrictions Acts have greatly increased the financial difficulties of the middle and working classes; and whether he will immediately introduce legislation for the purpose of materially reducing the percentage by which rents can be increased over those of pre-War?


I will consider the point raised by the hon. Member, but I cannot give any undertaking as to the introduction of legislation.
