HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 c179W
Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to a recent case in which an owner admitted that he bought two houses in 1945 for £562 and has since offered one of them to the occupier for £1,000; and whether it is his intention to control such abnormal increase in prices.

Mr. Bevan

The answer to the first part is "No." As regards the second part I have no power to enforce such control.
