HC Deb 25 November 1937 vol 329 c1405
72. Mr. W. Roberts

asked the Minister of Health whether, in introducing legislation affecting rural housing, he will make provision to prevent cottages that have been improved under the Rural Workers Housing Acts being assessed at values above the rent which is fixed by the local authority?

Sir K. Wood

I will consider the hon. Member's suggestion, but I do not think it would be practicable to include provisions in housing legislation for the modification of rating law.
