HC Deb 28 July 1960 vol 627 c194W
103. Dr. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that many house agents are accepting more than one deposit on the same property on a sale subject to contract; and whether he will introduce legislation to prohibit this practice.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I have no evidence to suggest that this is a widespread practice, but it is not one which is very suitable for legislation.
