HC Deb 08 March 1954 vol 524 c1709
Mr. Hastings

I desire to present a Petition from 3,519 of my constituents against the Housing Repairs and Rents Bill which the petitioners claim will permit a substantial increase in rents for a minimum of repairs. The Petition reads as follows: The humble Petition of the residents of Barking and District in the county of Essex showeth that an increase in house rents is proposed in legislation now before the House of Commons. Wherefore, your petitioners pray that the said Bill will not be passed, and your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. To lie upon the Table.
