HC Deb 05 May 1955 vol 540 c159W
44. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many rent tribunals have now had requests to determine the amounts of increases in rent under the Housing Repairs and Rents Act, 1954; how many cases have been submitted to them; in how many of such cases decisions have been arrived at; and in how many the amounts demanded by the landlords have been reduced.

Mr. Deedes

The latest returns available at the moment cover the period up to and including the 31st March, 1955. At that date 1,737 applications had been received by 31 tribunals, and 1,078 had been decided. My right hon. Friend regrets that the information asked for in the last part of the Question is not available.
