§ 65. Mrs. Braddock
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that in slum clearance areas in Liverpool landlords are unable to comply with local authority orders to repair, as the property is too bad, and that rents are not collected, and when arrears reach a high amount orders for eviction are made to county courts; and what steps he proposes to take to alleviate this situation.
§ Mrs. Braddock
In view of the details I have sent to the Minister about bad cases, and the very difficult housing situation in Liverpool, would he see whether it is possible for county court decisions to fit in with the requirements of his Ministry?
§ Mr. Walker-Smith
Will the Minister make it clear that he deprecates any suggestion of a Minister attempting to give directions to His Majesty's judges?
