HC Deb 21 June 1955 vol 542 c55W
Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what effect the Housing Repairs and Rents Act has had in checking the decay of older houses; and if he is satisfied that the effect of the Act will give the desired result.

Mr. Sandys

The Act is having a useful effect in encouraging the carrying out of repairs and improvements. Progress is bound to be gradual because of the safeguards imposed for the protection of the tenants.
