HC Deb 06 March 1956 vol 549 cc189-90W
89. Mr. Sparks

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware that landlords can take the opportunity of a notice under Section 11 of the Housing Repairs and Rents Act, 1954, to evict a tenant instead of doing reasonable and necessary repairs; and if he will take steps to amend the law so as to make repairs instead of eviction compulsory in such cases.

Mr. Sandys

I am aware of this; but I have heard of only one case in which the tenant was evicted. I shall watch the position; and, if it proves necessary, I will consider what action I should take.
