HC Deb 28 June 1934 vol 291 c1293
23. Mr. RANKIN

asked the Minister of Health whether he will recommend to local authorities concerned the desirability of making an inquiry to ascertain the number of tenants living in council houses subsidised from the rates and taxes, who possess garages and motor cars, with the object of suggesting to them that they should vacate their premises in favour of poorer tenants?


No, Sir. The management of council houses is a matter for which the local authorities concerned are themselves responsible.


Can the Minister say how many councillors who themselves own motor cars and garages live in these houses?
