HC Deb 14 June 1945 vol 411 cc1799-800W
Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the Minister of Health if it is the Government's intention to introduce legislation on the lines of the recent Report of the Committee on Rent Control.

Mr. Willink

No, Sir. It is too late for the present Government to introduce further legislation.

Mr. Cocks

asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered the Report from the North Midland Regional Local Price Regulation Committee giving details of the excessive prices charged for furnished apartments; and whether, in the interests of returning Servicemen, he will take steps to set up rent tribunals similar to those operating in Scotland.

Mr. Willink

I have seen a resolution passed by this Committee. I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to-day to my hon. Friend the Member for East Fife (Mr. H. Stewart).
