§ Sir CHIOZZA MONEY
asked the Attorney-General whether he can propose 1023W such an Amendment of the Courts (Emergency Powers) Act, 1914, as will, during the War, protect mortgagors from whom a higher rate of interest is demanded upon threat of foreclosure?
§ Sir E. CARSON
Under the Act referred to in the question, no right of foreclosure can be exercised without application to a Court which has absolute discretion to defer the operation of such right where the party liable is unable immediately to make payment by reason of circumstances attributable directly or indirectly to the present War. I do not think the legislation suggested is necessary.
