§ Mr. NEWBOULD
asked the Attorney-General whether he is aware that notices to quit are being served on tenants in Leytonstone calling upon them to deliver up possession on 29th September, and at the same time suggesting fresh forms of tenancy and thus avoiding the operation of the recent Rent Act; and, if so, what action do the Government propose to prevent such action?
§ Sir GORDON HEWART
I am not aware that notices as mentioned by the hon. Member are being served on tenants at Leytonstone, but I may point out that such notices will not have the effect of avoiding the operation of the Increase of Rents, etc., Acts in the cases of houses to which the Acts apply.
