§ 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.
