HC Deb 17 February 1927 vol 202 c1103
54. Mr. MOSLEY

asked the Minister of Health whether he proposes to introduce legislation this year for the continuance of the Rent Restrictions Act?


The question of the continuance of the Increase of Rent and Mortgage Interest (Restrictions) Act, which continues in force in England and Wales till 25th December, 1927, and in Scotland till 28th May, 1928, is under consideration; but I am not at present able to make any announcement on the subject.


Will the right hon. Gentleman be able to make an early pronouncement, in view of the widespread interest in the country concerning the lapse of this Act?


No, I do not think so.
