HC Deb 01 April 1958 vol 585 cc1012-3
40. Mr. Weitzman

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he will advise local authorities to request tenants by public notice to inform the local authority if they have received notice to quit on 6th October or thereafter; and request local authorities to keep a register containing such information, so that in case of evictions after that date such tenants may receive advice or assistance.

Mr. H. Brooke

No, Sir.

Mr. Weitzman

In view of the evictions foreshadowed by the service of the notices to quit, would not it be a wise plan to make provision in case difficulty does arise in October?

Mr. Brooke

I do not think that the suggestion made by the hon. Gentleman is a very good one.
