HC Deb 06 December 1922 vol 159 c1791W

asked the Minister of Labour, as representing the Ministry of Health, if there are many unoccupied houses in the country at the present time, and that their owners are refusing to let but are willing to sell them; and whether he will introduce a Bill to make such cottage property liable to local rates?


My right hon. Friend does not feel that he can make any proposal for legislation on the lines suggested.
