Oral Answers to Questions — Disabled War Pensioners (Motor Cars) (26 Jul 1949)

Lord Willoughby de Eresby: While I appreciate what the Minister has done and is doing in this respect, may I ask him whether, in his turn, he appreciates the fact that it is possible for a man to lose both legs but, simply because he has not lost them high enough up, to be compelled to have a tricycle and to ride by himself for the rest of his life? Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is produced in this...

Lord Willoughby de Eresby: I do not think I need answer that, because we had a very long discussion on it on the Committee stage, where it was pointed out to the Minister that a very large gap exists between the case of any farm building work and improvement, and the rent which can be charged under the Rent Restriction Acts.
