§ 65. Mr. Haydn Davies
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the fact that local authorities with long waiting lists of housing applications have no means of ascertaining whether housing properties are available for letting, and since self-contained lettings do not interfere with the privacy of either owner or other tenants in a house, he will give local authorities power to register and control all lettings of self-contained housing units within their areas.
§ Mr. Davies
Would the Minister agree that if local authorities could make registers of these lettings, it would enable them to give accommodation to people most needing it?
