HC Deb 19 February 1951 vol 484 c154W
Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Minister of Works if he is aware of the disadvantages associated with the building-lessor scheme; and whether it is his intention to bring this to an end.

Mr. Stokes

Nearly all these building-lessor schemes were planned in order to release requisitioned accommodation as quickly as possible. I am aware that they have certain disadvantages and no new schemes are being authorised. The position is under review having regard to the needs and effect of the defence programme.
