§ 51. Mr. Lipson
asked the Minister of Health whether, in order to check speculation in house property, he will take 1227 steps to permit, for the duration of war, the sale of houses only to persons who require them for their own occupation?
I am having the whole question further examined, and I will certainly take into account the suggestion made by my hon. Friend.
§ Mr. Lipson
Can the right hon. Gentleman say when he hopes to make a statement on the matter, in view of its urgency?
§ Sir Irving Albery
Will my right hon. Friend, in doing that, also bear in mind that some people cannot buy houses and that others, who do, may make available for letting some which had not been formerly to let at all?
