HC Deb 10 May 1923 vol 163 cc2609-10W

asked the Minister of Health if he has received a petition from the tenants' association of the Morley Corporation housing scheme praying for a reduction of their rents in consideration of the fact that wages have dropped considerably during the past two years and the continuous bad trade which exists in that borough; and can he see his way to allow a substantial reduction of the rents at present in operation?


On representations made by the Morley Corporation, I have agreed to reductions of rent of from 9d. to 1s. per week as from the 1st instant. A petition has been received from the Tenants' Association praying for further reduction. The petition has been referred to the Corporation, who are responsible for the administration of the housing scheme.
