HC Deb 23 July 1941 vol 373 cc905-6W
Sir I. Albery

asked the President of the Board of Trade, with reference to the War Damage Act, 1941, Part II., how he reconciles the information given in the Explanatory Memorandum B.S. 4, Section 29, to the effect that a person renting part of an unfurnished house, or even a room, is a householder, with the Treasury regulation providing that not more than one person shall be treated as a householder by virtue of his position in that household?

Captain Waterhouse

The term "household" is used in the sense of a substantially separate establishment. There may thus be several households in one house, although there can be only one householder in each of the households in that house.
