Orders of the Day — Rent and Mortgage Interest Restrictions Bill.: Clause 1. — (Prolongation of duration of principal Act, 10 and 11 Geo. 5, c. 17.) (9 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: There is one point raised by me in Committee which has not been dealt with to-night. It is a practical point that the House should have before it, before it decides on the date. By fixing 1925 we allow only one complete building season for working-class property before we bring about decontrol. During the current year no great amount of working-class building will be done in the country....

Orders of the Day — Rent and Mortgage Interest Restrictions Bill.: Clause 1. — (Prolongation of duration of principal Act, 10 and 11 Geo. 5, c. 17.) (9 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: If the hon. and gallant Gentleman will only read the Reports of the Local Government Board for the years before the War, he will find that while there were empty houses, there were always overcrowded families—who should have been inhabiting those empty houses—and slums which ought to have been cleared away. There never has been, in the lifetime of any hon. Member in the House, a real...

Orders of the Day — Rent and Mortgage Interest Restrictions Bill.: Clause 1. — (Prolongation of duration of principal Act, 10 and 11 Geo. 5, c. 17.) (9 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: I was not brought up on the shorter Catechism, therefore I cannot follow the logic of the hon. and gallant Gentleman's interruption. He said there were 13,000 uninhabitable houses in Glasgow which were being inhabited, and that that was a proof that private enterprise would produce a surplus of good houses. That is a metaphysical subtlety that may appeal to Scottish minds, but which leaves me...

Orders of the Day — Rent and Mortgage Interest Restrictions Bill.: Clause 1. — (Prolongation of duration of principal Act, 10 and 11 Geo. 5, c. 17.) (9 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: We ought to know whether private enterprise is going to produce the surplus of houses necessary before we settle the period of decontrol. I agree with what has been said by hon. Members, that the present state of uncertainty is bad for private enterprise in the building trade. After the speech of the hon. Member for West Woolwich to-night, that uncertainty will be converted almost into...

Orders of the Day — Rent and Mortgage Interest Restrictions Bill.: Clause 3. — (Restriction on right to possession.) (9 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: Although we have been discussing this matter as if it were merely a case between the brewer and the tenant of a public-house, the Clause as drafted goes far wider than that, and it refers to any building of which any part is used for licensed premises. It includes all those premises that are licensed for grocers' licences throughout the country. I understood that one of the things that was to...

Orders of the Day — Rent and Mortgage Interest Restrictions Bill.: Clause 5. — (Notice of increase of rent.) (10 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: We have been told that the Government never make mistakes, and that those who have drawn up this Bill know what they are doing. I want to point out that Section 2 of the principal Act makes it very difficult to follow the reasoning of the Minister of Health when he says that a landlord who had to ask his tenant for 14½ per cent. was serving an invalid notice. Each time in Section 2 of the...
