§ Mr. RHYS DAVIES
asked the Minister of Health if he has received protests against the practice of property owners in keeping dwelling-houses empty for long periods for sale with vacant possession in spite of the shortage of housing accommodation, with a consequent loss of rates thereon to local authorities; and whether he will consider taking immediate steps to put a stop to this practice?
§ Sir A. MOND
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave yesterday476W to a question of the hon. Member for the Heywood and Radcliffe Division (Mr. Halls) upon this matter.
