HC Deb 29 October 1957 vol 575 cc20-1W
96. Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government, to what extent local authorities who expend moneys in establishing rest centres, furniture storage depots, soup and food kitchens to deal with the problems resulting from evictions under the Rent Act, 1957, will be able to reclaim such expenditure from public funds.

Mr. H. Brooke

I do not propose to follow the hon. Member in his flights of fancy.
