HC Deb 18 December 1952 vol 509 cc264-5W
145. Mr. W. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware that widespread complaints are being made of tenants being induced by fraud or threats to enter into contracts for the purchase of their homes; and whether he will cause an investigation to be made, with a view to the introduction of legislation to remedy this matter.

Mr. Marples

The answer to the first part of the Question is "No," but if the hon. Member will send my right hon. Friend details he will consider them. Tenants of rent-controlled houses are, of course, already well protected against eviction.
