HC Deb 13 April 1921 vol 140 cc1100-1
54. Major PRESCOTT

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the declared policy of the Government that the subsidising of an industry out of taxation is wrong in principle and indefensible, and of the fact that the subsidising of the housing industry now controlled by his Department is fatal to efficiency and enterprise, he will, in order to place the building industry on an economic basis, set up a competent housing board and have a searching inquiry into the house-building arrangements?


I must refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply given by the Prime Minister on the 10th March to the question put by the hon. Member for North St. Pancras (Mr. Lorden).
