§ 55. Sir A. Meyer
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is aware that owners of houses let under a regulated tenancy are unable to collect rent increases awarded by a rent officer because of the rent freeze; and if he will consider making special payments to rectify this situation.
§ Mr. Kaufman
The purpose of the rent freeze was to prevent rent increases, whether resulting from the registration of higher fair rents or otherwise. I do not intend to make payments of the kind the hon. Member has in mind.
