HC Deb 26 March 1968 vol 761 cc233-4W
53. Mr. Oakes

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government when he plans to repeal the Small Tenements Recovery Act, 1838 by virtue of the power given to him under Section 35(5) of the Rent Act, 1965 in order to give security of tenure to tenants of council houses.

Mr. MacColl

My right hon. Friend would prefer to wait for the report of the Withers Payne Committee on the enforcement of judgment debts, which I understand will be available soon, before taking a decision.
