§ 78. Sir K. WOOD
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he caused proceedings for eviction to be taken against Mr. Charles Oldham at the Brentford County Court this week; and what was the result of his application?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Major Attlee)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the latter part, the action failed on a technical point. The question of taking fresh proceedings is under consideration.
§ Sir K. WOOD
Did it not transpire in the proceedings before the Court that the Secretary of State asked the County Court Judge not to have any regard to the question whether alternative accommodation was available or not?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
Has the hon. and gallant Gentleman's attention been called 910 to the statement of the Attorney-General in Committee, that the Crown would exercise no privilege which was not given to private landlords, and will he see that these outrages are not attempted by Ministers of the Crown?
