HC Deb 01 April 1963 vol 675 c17W
96. Mr. Gourlay

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland to what extent it is his policy to intervene with any local authority which reviews its municipal house rents when the result of such a review produces an average rent higher than the Scottish average.

Mr. Noble

I will intervene in any case where I am of the opinion that an investigation should be made as to whether a local authority have failed to do what is required of it by the statutory provisions relating to rents.
