34. Mr. VYVYAN ADAMS
asked the Minister of Health whether he proposes so to amend the housing laws as to give the owner of condemned property the right of an independent hearing of appeals against the decisions of inspectors from the Ministry of Health?
§ Sir K. WOOD
This issue has been exhaustively discussed in the course of procedings on the Housing Bill now before Parliament and I have no present intention of reopening it.
Would my right hon. Friend re-read the speech made recently in this House on this topic by his noble colleague who sits for Hastings (Lord E. Percy) and is now in the Cabinet?
Will my right hon. Friend then allow himself to be influenced by the unanswerable arguments therein contained?
