HC Deb 24 July 1930 vol 241 c2392
51. Mr. PALMER

asked the Minister of Health if he will make inquiry into the hutments at Greenwich and elsewhere purchased from His Majesty's Government by the Holbrook Estate Company, otherwise described as York, Grey, Gillette, and others, with a view to ascertaining whether this type of dwelling is in fact receiving some immunity from the provisions of rent control by reason et being formerly Government property?


I could not usefully undertake such an inquiry as is suggested by my hon. Friend since any question whether the Rent Restrictions Acts apply to any dwelling-house, or as to the rent which may be charged in respect of any dwelling-house to which the Acts apply, is one solely for the determination of the courts.
