HC Deb 19 October 1915 vol 74 cc1616-7

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he has been making investigation into the housing shortage in Coventry, aggravated by the pressure of munition work; whether it has been decided that 600 new houses are immediately required; whether his Department are co-operating in this matter with the corporation of Coventry; whether it is proposed to advance money, if so, to what extent and upon what terms; and will any similar offer be made to other munition centres where the need is equally pressing?


The answer to the first, second, and third questions is in the affirmative. The precise financial terms are not yet definitely settled. Somewhat similar arrangements are already being considered in other munition centres where there is a permanent need for housing.
