HC Deb 12 April 1937 vol 322 cc628-9W
Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the continued housing shortage and the anxiety of numerous tenants of small houses, particularly in the neighbourhood of London, he will make a statement with regard to the intentions of His Majesty's Government to modify the existing law on the expiration of the Rent Restrictions Acts at present in force?

Mr. R. S. Hudson

As my right hon. Friend has already announced, it is the Government's intention to set up forthwith a Departmental Committee to inquire into the operation of the Rent Restrictions Acts.
