HC Deb 22 June 1939 vol 348 cc2488-9W
Mr. J. Hall

asked the Attorney-General whether his attention has been drawn to the practice of landlords to levy distress on premises controlled by the Rent Restriction Acts without the leave of the county court as provided in Section 6 of the 1920 Act; and whether he proposes

to take any steps to put an end to this practice?

The Attorney-General

No, Sir. If there is such a practice the tenant has his remedy for illegal distress, if he chooses to avail himself of it. The Distress for Rent Committee set up by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health is considering this matter.
