HC Deb 06 April 1914 vol 60 cc1618-9

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether the Board estimate, in view of the growing cost of building, that they can in future hope to build good labourers' cottages at a lower cost than the £218 per cottage, which has been the average cost of cottages built by them during the past five years; and, if so, in what directions do they look for saving of cost?


I would ask the hon. Gentleman to await the publication of the Report of the Committee, to which I referred in my answer to a question on this subject last week.
