HC Deb 01 July 1948 vol 452 cc2351-2
34. Mr. Walker-Smith

asked the Minister of Health whether consideration has been given to the position arising on the death or bankruptcy of intending owner-occupiers referred to in paragraph eight of his Departmental circular 108/48, dated 25th June, 1948; and with what result.

Mr. Bevan

A licence is personal and is not transferable. Where necessary, an application for a new licence to complete the structure would be considered by the local authority on its individual merits.

Mr. Walker-Smith

Would the Minister give consideration to the specific question asked here, because otherwise contractual difficulties of various sorts might ensue in the event of the circumstances referred to in the Question?

Mr. Bevan

I will certainly consider that further.
