34. Mr. PRICE
asked the Minister of Heath what boroughs, other than Kingston-upon-Hull and Newcastle-on-Tyne, have formed rent committees to deal with contraventions of the Rent Restrictions Acts; and whether reports from these committees are being received in the Ministry and being considered in connection with the proposed legislation on rent restriction?
Sir H. YOUNG
Local authorities do not necessarily inform me when they set up committees to deal with Rent Act questions, so that I cannot give the hon. Member the information desired, though I am aware of the constitution of such a committee in Sunderland. In some cases copies of reports made to their local authorities by the committees, or of 982 resolutions based thereon, have been sent to my Department and will be considered in connection with any amending legislation.
§ Mr. MAXTON
Can the right hon. Gentleman let us know when we are going to have the amending legislation?
§ 26. Mr. JAMES DUNCAN (for Major Sir HERBERT CAYZER)
asked the Minister of Health when the legislation to enforce the general recommendations of the Inter-Departmental Committee on the Rent Restrictions Acts will be introduced?
Sir H. YOUNG
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given on the 6th April to the hon. Member for Wigan (Mr. Parkinson).
