HC Deb 23 July 1913 vol 55 cc2031-2
23. Mr. ROYDS

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many cottages and small houses were erected in Great Britain with the assistance of public moneys in the years 1909–10, 1910–11, and 1911–12 by public utility societies and private persons, respectively; and what sums of money were advanced for that purpose?


I am not able to state the exact number of dwellings erected in each of the years mentioned, but I will circulate with the Votes a Table showing the total of the loans approved by the Public Works Loan Commissioners, under the Housing of the Working Classes Acts, to public utility societies and to private individuals, companies, etc., respectively, together with the number of dwellings to be erected, in each of the last four financial years.—[See Written Answers this date.]
