HC Deb 04 July 1928 vol 219 c1389W

asked the Minister of Health whether he will introduce legislation enabling or requiring a local building authority to affix to every house unfavourably reported upon by a medical officer of health, and not forthwith repaired or reconditioned to his satisfaction, a notice giving the name and address of the person drawing the rent thereof, and further requiring a list of the names and addresses of such defaulters to be posted at intervals on the doors of parish churches or like public places?


The answer is in the negative. My right hon. Friend does not think that the method proposed is likely to attain the end which the hon. Member has in view, and he would be afraid that it would tend to restrict the already very extensive work which local authorities do in securing the remedying of defects in housing accommodation.
