HC Deb 21 November 1963 vol 684 c116W
15. Mr. Awbery

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware of the hardship caused to many householders by landlords who threaten them with eviction under the Rent Acts and demand extortionate rents; and if he will take steps to protect such tenants.

Mr. Woodhouse

The police are and always will be prepared to take appropriate steps to protect a tenant in any case where action by a landlord involves a breach of the law.
