HC Deb 25 November 1937 vol 329 c1403
56. Mr. Hannah

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of widespread anxiety concerning the approaching end of rent restriction; and whether he can make a statement on the subject?

68. Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Health when he anticipates the Rent Restriction Committee, appointed last year, will make its report?

Sir K. Wood

I hope to receive the report of the Rent Restrictions Acts Committee, which was appointed on 27th May, 1937, very shortly. Until this report is submitted I am not in a position to add to the statement made during the Debate on the Expiring Laws Continuance Bill on 8th November.

Mr. E. J. Williams

Will the Minister reflect on the ever-increasing cost of living and the hardships upon tenants who may be affected by decontrol?
