As regards the Housing Bill, it is proposed to introduce the Bill as early as possible, and it is hoped that it will be in the hands of Members not later than the 16th April. The Second Reading of the Bill will be taken on Tuesday, the 24th April.

It is not yet possible to say exactly when the text of the Rent Restriction Bill will be published, or when the Second Reaching will be taken.

Having regard to the great urgency of this matter, and the fact that a large portion of the building season has already gone by, is it not possible to take the Housing Bill before the 24th?
