HC Deb 18 June 1951 vol 489 c17W
92. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Minister of Local Government and Planning what steps he proposes to take to protect leaseholders whose ground rent has been increased to two-thirds of the rateable value of their habitation and are thus prevented from selling their property if they so desire.

Mr. Dalton:

This would require legislation of which I regret that there is no early prospect.
