HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 c306W
94. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware of the growing practice adopted by certain house agents of making charges for supplying information relative to vacant houses and flats, without actually giving any service, and, as this is contrary to the professional code of the recognised estate agents, if he will introduce suitable legislation to make these practices illegal.

Mr. Bevan

I can hold out no prospect of legislation on this subject.
