HC Deb 28 February 1952 vol 496 cc203-4W
157. Mr. Awbery

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware of the hardships caused to members of families who are living with parents as sub-tenants and who are regarded as trespassers on the death of the parents and are liable to be turned out of a home in which they have lived all their lives; and if he will take steps to give protection to such people.

Mr. Marples

My right hon. Friend is advised that where the successor of the original statutory tenant of a house, whether the successor be widow, widower or child, has created a lawful subtenancy of part of the house, the subtenant would be protected by the Rent Restriction Acts on the determination of the interest of the tenant.
