§ 82 and 83. Mr. Elwyn Jones
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government (1) what reply he has given to letters of complaint sent to him by tenants of houses flooded in the winter of 1953 whose landlords are now claiming rent increases by reason of repairs and redecorations carried out on those houses after the floods but paid for by donations to the landlords from the Lord Mayor's National Flood and Tempest Distress Fund;
(2) whether he will introduce legislation at an early date to amend the First Schedule to the Housing Repairs and Rents Act, 1954, by adding to work to be disregarded for the purposes of that Schedule work the cost of which has been paid for by donations to the landlord from the Lord Mayor's National Flood and Tempest Distress Fund.
§ Mr. Sandys
This matter has only just been brought to my notice and I should like time to look into it further.
