HC Deb 04 December 1951 vol 494 c239W
127. Mr. Hylton-Foster

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will introduce legislation to secure that, subject to proper safeguards in the case of houses the permitted sale price of which is limited by the terms of the building licence, a house-owner who is compelled to remove to another area in pursuit of employment or promotion in his employment may sell his house at its full market price.

132. Mr. M. Lindsay

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will bear in mind that an early indication of the Government's intentions in regard to the control of house-selling price provided for in section 43 of the Housing Act, 1949, which expires in 1953, will be welcomed by all those who now wish to sell their houses; and if he will take action as soon as possible in this matter.

Mr. H. Macmillan

This control continues until 20th December, 1953. I should like carefully to watch the situation before taking any steps which might weaken its efficacy.
