§ 73. Mr. Gammans
asked the Minister of Health if it was with his sanction that the Harrow Council raised the rents by is. per week from 1st April of all its houses and flats in order to cover the increased costs of repairs; and what additional repairs have to be undertaken by this council as compared with a private landlord who is not permitted to raise the rent for such a purpose.
§ Mr. Gammans
Does the Minister propose to seek powers to prevent a local authority doing something for which a private landlord, if he did it, would go to gaol?
