HC Deb 10 October 1946 vol 427 cc345-6
29. Mr. Charles Smith

asked the Minister of Health when he expects to make an announcement about the establishment of a tribunal under the Furnished Houses (Rent Control) Act, to cover an area including the borough of Colchester and the Lexden and Winstree rural district.

Mr. Bevan

The tribunal will be established as soon as suitable offices, for which an urgent search is now being made, can be found for it. I do not at present propose to include the rural district of Lexden and Winstree in the area for which this tribunal will act, since I have not yet received the views of the council in reply to my circulars.
