HC Deb 15 December 1964 vol 704 cc55-6W
86. Mr. Derek Page

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware that some tenants of tied accommodation are threatened with eviction if they show preference for a political party; and to what extent, in drafting the Protection from Eviction Bill, he took this into consideration.

Mr. Crossman

I have been informed by my hon. Friend that some tenants have been so threatened. Under the Government's interim proposals contained in the Protection from Eviction Bill tenants will be protected against arbitrary eviction, but it would have been inappropriate in this Bill to deal with wider issues of landlord and tenant relations.
