HC Deb 30 May 1946 vol 423 c223W
83. Mr. Lever

asked the Minister of Health how many dwelling-houses and flats are at present requisitioned by local authorities in England and Wales; and whether he is satisfied that local authorities are using their powers sufficiently to safeguard tenants who do not enjoy protection of the Rent Restrictions Acts.

Mr. Key

On 1st May, 88,731 houses and flats were held under requisition by local authorities in England and Wales. My right hon. Friend has no reason to think that local authorities are not fully exercising their powers.
