HC Deb 10 June 1941 vol 372 c59W
Lieut.-Colonel Macnamara

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the owners of a country farmhouse near Alton, Hants, are charging a lady and child, who have had to be evacuated, £2 15s. per week for two small rooms and a tiny kitchenette, without food; that the Alton Rural District Council, who have been appealed to on this matter, are not giving any protection to the tenants, who are obviously being exploited as a result of the war; and whether he will make inquiries into this case?

Mr. E. Brown

No, Sir, but I am making inquiries and will communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend.
