§ 28. Mr. D. GRENFELL
asked the Minister of Health whether a house will automatically become decontrolled under the terms of the new Bill in the event of a local authority increasing its rateable assessment above the level at which the house would be controlled?
§ Mr. GRENFELL
In view of the importance of the question to property owners and tenants, will the right hon. Gentleman not make a public declaration on the point and convey an intimation to local authorities?
Sir H. YOUNG
I have no doubt that the answer I have given will secure the purpose that the hon. Gentleman desires.
§ 29. Mr. PARKINSON
asked the Minister of Health whether under the provisions of the new Bill the council of a county borough or county district will be empowered to fix fair rent in houses which have been decontrolled?
