HC Deb 07 March 1960 vol 619 c7W
Mr. Skeffington

asked the Minister of Aviation whether he will ensure that tenants rehoused by his Department upon acquisition of their former homes are given terms comparable with those they would have enjoyed had they continued in their previous tenancies under the protection of the Rent Acts.

Mr. Sandys

The rehousing of persons displaced from their homes in such circumstances is governed by Section 31 of the Civil Aviation Act, 1949. This requires, in effect, that alternative accommodation shall be provided which is suited to the reasonable requirements of those displaced, and that the terms shall likewise be reasonable.
