HC Deb 23 April 1951 vol 487 cc27-8W
Mr. Hutchinson

asked the Minister of Local Government and Planning what instructions are now being given by his Department to local authorities with regard to the releasing of requisitioned houses to their owners if the owner or any member of his family desire to occupy it.

Mr. Dalton

None. But I should like to see local authorities make an order of priority for the release of requisitioned properties as opportunity offers, and I think that in doing so they should give some special consideration to owner-occupiers.
