HC Deb 13 May 1924 vol 173 cc1168-9W

also asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that a large house in Edmonton, rented at £172 per annum plus £150 rates, is at present sub-let to 12 families at a total rental of £780 per annum; and whether he proposes to seek powers to deal with cases of this description?


My right hon. Friend has no information in regard to this case; but the house in question appears to be outside the limits of the Kent Restriction Acts, and he does not think it would be practicable to propose an extension of the Acts to cover such cases.
