HC Deb 25 May 1973 vol 857 c189W
Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he has taken under the provisions of the Counter-Inflation Act to control the assignment of business leases at a premium; and how the permitted figure is reached.

Mr. Channon

The Counter-Inflation (Business Rents) Order 1973 does not relate to payments made for the sale of a lease from one tenant to another.
