HC Deb 06 March 1951 vol 485 c40W
105. Mr. J. Hynd

asked the Minister of Local Government and Planning whether his attention has been called to the large number of complaints regarding refusals by landlords to agree to exchange of tenancies; and whether, in view of the serious degree to which such refusals are aggravating the general housing difficulties, he will consider introducing legislation to control this practice.

Mr. Dalton

I hope that private landlords will do their utmost to facilitate voluntary exchanges, and so prevent the necessity of considering such legislation.
