§ Sir W. Teeling
asked the Secretary to the Treasury why no answer has been given by the Treasury Solicitor to letters from Mr. Dumgrell of 6, South Down Avenue, Brighton, concerning No. 8, South Down Avenue, which has been under the Treasury Solicitor's control for 15 months and which is deteriorating in condition with a consequent effect on the value of neighbouring property; and why he has taken no steps to have the dustbins emptied for 15 months.
§ Mr. Green
Until letters of administration have been obtained, the Treasury Solicitor has no legal right to act. In anticipation of this authority, he is however making arrangements to carry out essential repairs and tidy up the property. A further letter of explanation has been sent to Mr. Dumbrell.
