HC Deb 18 December 1958 vol 597 cc306-7W
Mr. Hale

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he is aware of the hardships that are being caused to tenants by failing to give notice within the arbitrary figure of two months fixed by a recent Act of their desire to continue the tenancy; and whether he will introduce measures to empower the county court to have a discretionary power to extend the time in case of illness, mistake or error.

The Attorney-General

I have been asked to reply.

I am not aware that there is any need for legislation amending the Landlord and Tenant Act, 1954, to which I assume the Question refers, but I am consulting my noble Friend the Lord Chancellor and will write to the hon. Member.
