HC Deb 27 October 1960 vol 627 cc324-5W
Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that many landlords are demanding, and receiving, excessive rents for decontrolled properties; and whether he will introduce a special excess property or rent tax for all moneys received by landlords above a stated figure, after allowing for actual expenditure on repairs and decorations by the recipients of these excess rents.

Mr. Barber

No. Rents are already fully taxed, subject to allowances for the landlord's liabilities in respect of maintenance, repairs insurance and management.
