§ 46. Mr. Lewis
asked the Prime Minister if he will give the reasons why he has refused to meet a deputation of hon. Members to discuss the effects of the Rent Act, 1957; and whether, in the interests of democracy, he will reconsider his decision.
§ The Prime Minister
The first part of the Question does not arise, since I have made no statement on any such matter. 119W As regards the second part of the Question, I believe that the interests of democracy as well as of the courtesies of Parliamentary life are better served if private communications between hon. Members are not publicly discussed.
