HC Deb 19 July 1923 vol 166 cc2473-4
67. Mr. OLIVER

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the furniture of ex-service men residing in houses erected by local authorities is being distrained upon for the nonpayment of inhabited house duty, many of whom are out of work and others heavily in arrears with their rents in consequence of unemployment; and will he issue instructions that no further action of this kind shall be taken until more normal conditions prevail?


If the hon. Member will furnish me with particulars of the cases to which he refers, I will cause inquiry to be made.
