HC Deb 03 February 1970 vol 795 c84W
Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government when he proposes to exercise his powers under the Rent Act, 1965, to bring into rent regulation categories of houses at present subject to rent control.

Mr. Denis Howell

Part III of the 1969 Housing Act enables dwellings now subject to rent control to be passed into rent regulation if they reach a prescribed standard of fitness and good repair. Unless dwellings reach this standard there will be no question of bringing them into regulation.
