§ Colonel DAY
asked the Minister of Health whether he has received representations from the East Grinstead Urban District Council asking for permission to reduce the rents of houses on their Brooklands Estate; and if he will state the reasons why such permission was refused?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
The last application for a reduction of rents of houses on the Brooklands Estate was received from the Council in December, 1923. In view of the prevailing rents of comparable houses in the neighbourhood, it was not found possible to approve the reduction then asked for.
