HC Deb 29 October 1957 vol 575 c19W
91. Mr. Brockway

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what assistance he proposes to give to local authorities to enable them to provide accommodation to tenants evicted in October, 1958, in consequence of the operation of the Rent Act.

Mr. H. Brooke

I feel sure that the great majority of tenants who find that for one reason or another they cannot stay in their present accommodation will be able to make arrangements to move to other accommodation before their protected tenancy expires. But in so far as there may be some who need help in finding other accommodation—and I am thinking here particularly of old people—local authorities can help them without special assistance from me.
