HC Deb 25 October 1932 vol 269 cc827-8W

asked the Minister of Health the nature of his reply to the representations made to him by local authorities on the question of housing rents?


My right hon. Friend has been unable to identify the representations referred to in the question. He had the advantage of discussing with the hon. Member and other gentlemen in December last the general question of the rents charged by local authorities in mining areas and nothing has happened in the meantime to modify the view then expressed that the present difficulties can best be dealt with at the present time by considering the arrears position.
