HC Deb 16 February 1920 vol 125 cc546-7W
Sir A. YEO

asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been drawn: to the practice of certain landlords who have compounding arrangements with municipal authorities, yet compel tenants to pay in full their portion of rates; and what steps are taken to prevent this contravention of The Rents Restrictions Act, 1917?


I have no evidence to show that the practice of charging tenants with more than the increase of rates permitted under the Increase of Rent Acts is at all widespread, but if my hon. Friend has any evidence showing that it is I shall be glad if he will send it to me.
