§ 1. Mr. William Shepherd
asked the Minister of Health what arrangements exist under his regulations for the reclaiming of back rent when rent tribunals decide that an excessive amount has been charged.
§ The Minister of Health (Mr. Aneurin Bevan)
None, Sir. The Furnished Houses (Rent Control) Act, 1946, under which these tribunals are set up, does not authorise the reclaiming of back rent.
§ Mr. Shepherd
Would the Minister consider it desirable to make provisions where gross overcharges are involved?
