HC Deb 26 October 1944 vol 404 cc372-3W
Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Minister of Health whether, in order to ensure a better standard of decency and comfort for tenants and the repair of dilapidated occupied houses, he will take steps to extend the provisions of Section 2 of the Housing Act, 1936, to all dwelling-houses of which the rateable value on 1st April, 1939, did not exceed in the Metropolitan Police district or the City of London £100, in Scotland £90, or elsewhere £75.

Mr. Willink

I understand that the Inter-Departmental Committee on Rent Control have this matter under consideration, in the light of representations made to them, and I am awaiting their report.
