§ 36. Mr. Channon
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the arrangements being made in Southend and other coastal areas under which the local authorities are taking over requisitioned property from the War Department to house bombed-out people; and whether he will ensure that the rental paid for such requisitioned property shall be brought up to the standard level of 1939 in those cases where it was taken over at lower rents by the War Department during the time when Southend was a defence area and partly evacuated.
§ Mr. Willink
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to him by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 29th May.
