§ 37. Sir Hugh Lucas-Tooth
asked the Minister of Health whether the rent demanded from a person living in requisitioned premises to which he was originally moved by reason of his being a transferred war worker is assessed on the same basis as that of a person living in requisitioned premises to which he was originally moved after having been bombed out; and, if there is a difference in method of assessment, what is the reason for such differentiation.
§ Mr. Bevan
There were special arrangements applying to persons who had been bombed out, which were terminated by the circulars issued on 22nd October and nth December last year. These special arrangements did not apply to transferred war workers. If, however, there are individual cases which the hon. Member thinks require further consideration, I will be glad if he will let me have details.
§ Sir H. Lucas-Tooth
Will the right hon. Gentleman say why there has been a distinction drawn between the bombed-out and the moved war workers?
