HC Deb 07 December 1965 vol 722 cc60-1W
Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government to what extent it is his policy to invite experienced and qualified chairmen and other members of rent tribunals to serve on rent assessment committees; and in what capacity.

Mr. Crossman

I certainly hope that some chairmen and members of the furnished rent tribunals will serve as members of rent assessment committees and in appropriate cases as chairmen of the committees. But I have to remember that the jurisdiction of the tribunals has been extended by the recent Act; I must not denude the tribunals of all their most experienced people.
