§ 11. Mr. W. THORNE
asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been called to certain recent decisions in the King's Bench Division concerning the Rent Restrictions Act, by which at least one million homes are affected; and if he intends taking any action to amend the law in the matter?
§ Sir K. WOOD
It is assumed that the hon. Member is referring to the case of Roe v. Russell. My right hon. Friend's attention has been drawn to this case, and he understands that leave to appeal has now been granted. In the circumstances, my right hon. Friend feels sure that the hon. Member would not wish him to make a statement on the subject.
§ Mr. THORNE
In the event of the appeal failing, will the Government take action next Session to deal with the matter?
