asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been called to the widespread feeling of anxiety among householders, lodgers, and shopkeepers arising out of the statement that the Rent Restrictions Act is to be allowed to lapse; and whether he will cause a statement to be issued to allay public anxiety?

Is the right hon. Baronet aware that this subject is causing a lot of anxiety, and that a statement from him would ease the public mind?
