HC Deb 19 March 1931 vol 249 c2131
38. Mr. C. WILLIAMS (for Sir BASIL PETO)

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the case of Frederick Norris, 38, Emes Road, Erith, who, with his wife and four children, is obliged to live in two rooms, although he is the owner or a six-roomed house of which he cannot get possession; and whether the Government have any present intention of introducing legislation to amend the Rent Restriction Acts in the interests of owners of small houses which they require for their own occupation?


This case has not been brought to my attention, but I understand that it is one which the hon. Member has himself submitted to the Inter-departmental Committee on the Rent Restriction Acts. As regards the second part of the question, I must of course await the report of the committee.
