HC Deb 29 October 1957 vol 575 cc18-9W
89. Mr. Brockway

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many tenants applied before 17th August, 1957, under the provisions of the Rent Act for a reduction in the gross value and rateable value of their dwellings on the ground of improvements for which they had been responsible before 7th November, 1956.

Mr. H. Brooke

The notice to which the hon. Member is referring—Form T—had to be served by the tenant on his landlord. I am not in a position to say how many were thus served. Up to 15th October, 713 applications had been made by tenants to valuation officers to certify the effect of improvements on the gross and rateable values. This figure relates, of course, only to cases where agreement could not be reached between landlord and tenant.
