HC Deb 17 October 1945 vol 414 cc1190-1W
Mr. Joynson-Hicks

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the decision of the judge of the Arundel County Court on 6th July, 1945, in the case of Pride v.Ross, in which the defendant was found to be a trespasser, and an eviction order was made against him, was frustrated by the action of a local authority who immediately upon receiving notice of the court order requisitioned the property, and, upon the execution of the order for eviction, reinstated the trespasser; and whether he will give an assurance that the executive shall not again be allowed to override the justiciary.

Mr. Key

My right hon. Friend is informed that the house was requisitioned until alternative accommodation could be found for the occupier. This has been done, and the Clerk of the Council has been told to release the premises.
