HC Deb 19 December 1946 vol 431 cc2171-2
89. Commander Noble

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that a number of tenants who have applied to the rent tribunal are being given notice by their landlords after the three months; and whether he is considering extending the period until more accommodation is available.

Mr. Bevan

The reply to the first part of the Question is, "Yes, Sir." As regards the second part, I can hold out no hope of legislation to extend the period but these cases come under the closest scrutiny with a view to action under existing powers for the protection of tenants in appropriate cases.
