HC Deb 21 March 1944 vol 398 cc674-5
66. Mr. R. C. Morrison

asked the Minister of Health how many local authorities in the Metropolitan area have requisitioned houses for which tenants are paying rent but not occupying; and the total number of houses affected.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health (Miss Horsbrugh)

I am unable to give the information asked for. The returns furnished to my right hon. and learned Friend do not distinguish between dwellings for which tenants were paying rents and other dwellings.
