HC Deb 10 March 1947 vol 434 cc142-3W
Mr. F. Noel-Baker

asked the Secretary of State for War why one week's notice to vacate 3, Boston Lodge Cottages, Brentford, was served on Mr. E. Enticott by the Middlesex Territorial Association on 14th February; whether there was any signed agreement as to conditions of tenancy between Mr. Enticott and the association; for what purpose the association intend to use this cottage; and whether he will make representations to the association to withdraw the notice, in view of the fact that the tenant has no alternative accommodation.

Mr. Bellenger

A warning notice that this quarter was required was served on the tenant as long ago as last August. He was given two months to find alternative accommodation. It was only after he had ignored this and repeated further letters, that he was given a week's notice as from 22nd February. The property is let on a weekly rent to the tenant who has refused to enter upon a tenancy agreement. It is required to house permanent staff of the Territorial Army.
