HC Deb 08 July 1966 vol 731 c114W
Mr. Bidwell

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will take steps, by legislation or otherwise, to prevent the practice of accommodation agents offering furniture for sale with such accommodation; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellish

It can be a convenience for an incoming tenant to be able to buy furniture in this way. To demand excessive prices in such sales is an offence under existing law, and my right hon. Friend is not satisfied that amendment is needed. He will be glad to consider any evidence that my hon. Friend may like to send him.
