HC Deb 11 May 1950 vol 475 c550
27. Mr. Eric Fletcher

asked the Minister of Health if he will introduce legislation requiring owners of empty property to register particulars of such empty property with the local authority.

Mr. Bevan

I can hold out no prospect of legislation on this point.

Mr. Fletcher

Could the Minister tell us whether there is any other method of checking evasions of the law with regard to the charging of key money?

Mr. Bevan

If my hon. Friend will put a precise question on the Order Paper. I will strive to give him a reply.
