HC Deb 06 March 1947 vol 434 c104W
112. Mr. Pritt

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the Territorial Army and Air Force Association of the County of London is attempting to evict a number of its residential tenants in Hammersmith and other parts of London without offering them alternative accommodation, asserting that they are not protected by the Rent Restriction Acts; and whether he will give the Metropolitan Borough Councils concerned powers to requisition the premises in question, or other premises outside their own areas, in order to accommodate these tenants, who cannot at present find other homes.

Mr. J. Edwards

My right hon. Friend is aware that the Associations are seeking to obtain possession of certain married quarters which have been let to civilians. The question whether the properties are protected by the Rent Restriction Acts is a matter for the courts to decide if and when legal proceedings have to be taken. The answer to the last part of the Question is. "No. Sir."
