HC Deb 16 July 1923 vol 166 c1876
70. Mr. W. THORNE

asked the Minister of Health why he is pressing upon the Tilbury Urban District Council to increase the rent of the various houses under their control by several shillings per week; if he is aware that 90 per cent. of the adult population are casual workers and the average wage is less than £2 per week; and if he will take action in the matter?

Lieut.-Colonel HOWARD-BURY

On a point of Order. Has the hon. Gentleman not had his quota of questions?


I think the hon. and gallant Gentleman is right. Mr. Potts.
