HC Deb 03 June 1943 vol 390 cc363-4
61. Mr. Hannah

asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider making it illegal for any landlord in letting houses or flats, to discriminate against tenants merely because they have children?

Mr. E. Brown

I do not consider that Action on the lines suggested by my hon. Friend would be practicable. As he will be aware, my powers of billeting and requisitioning are sufficient to enable me to ensure that the needs of persons who are required to move in connection with the war effort are met.
