§ Mr. MARCUS
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps have been taken to provide tenants with an opportunity of submitting grievances to the Scottish committee appointed to deal with the operation of the Rent Restriction Acts, and when the committee is likely to report?
Mr. W. ADAMSON
My hon. Friend doubtless refers to the Inter-Departmental Committee recently appointed by the Minister of Health and myself to inquire into the working of the Rent Restriction Acts. The procedure of the committee is a matter for the committee themselves to determine, but it is of course open to all persons interested to make representations to the committee. I understand that the committee have invited a representative of the Scottish Labour Housing Association to appear to give evidence before them and are calling for evidence, both oral and written, from other Scottish organisations and individuals. I am unable at present to say when the committee is likely to report.
