HC Deb 03 February 1971 vol 810 cc378-9W
Mr. Meacher

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many private tenants in furnished accommodation have applied during the last year to a rent tribunal, after two confirmations of their security of tenure, for a third extension; how many of these applications were granted; and what were the corresponding figures for those claiming a fourth and fifth extension of their tenure.

Mr. Amery

In 1970, 318 tenants in England and Wales applied to rent tribunals for a third or subsequent extension of their security of tenure and it was granted in 183 cases (58 per cent.). Figures for fourth and fifth applications are not kept separately.
