§ Mr. Liddall
asked the Minister of Health whether he is satisfied that supervision is adequate to prevent unnecessary damaging of houses requisitioned by his Department; and what arrangements are in operation for having repairs effected where necessary and the fixing of responsibility for such damage.
§ Mr. Willink
Yes, Sir. Houses are normally requisitioned and managed on my behalf by the local authority of the district concerned, and the usual agreement made with the person licensed to occupy the premises empowers the local authority to enter them at all reasonable times to effect repairs and requires the occupier to make good any damage he may cause.
