HC Deb 31 May 1922 vol 154 cc2121-2W
Captain ELLIOT

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that great uneasiness is felt in the districts of Crawford and Abington by reason of recent demands on tenants to purchase houses at prices far above what they can afford under the present conditions of trade and employment; if any alternative accommodation is available in these areas; and what is the attitude of the Scottish Board of Health towards the renewal of the Rent Restriction Acts?


I have no information as regards the first two parts of the question. As to the last part, I cannot add anything to the reply given on the 24th May by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health to the hon. Member for Heywood and Radcliffe (Mr. Halls).
