HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 cc339-40W
58. Mr. Clinton Davis

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will issue a circular advising rent officers not to receive hospitality from landlords, or their representatives, with whom they are or may be engaged in adjudications of rent.

Mr. Amery

Rent Officers generally have established a good reputation for fairness and impartiality, which I think is well justified. In view, however, of a recent newspaper article a circular letter has been sent to remind them of the importance of avoiding any action that might be misunderstood.
