§ 36. Mr. BRIANT
asked the Minister of Health what is the estimated number of dwelling-houses required; and if in the estimate he has made due provision for the replacement of the very large number of existing houses which, though at present inhabited, are yet unhealthy, unsuitable, and frequently insanitary?
§ Sir A. MOND
As I have previously stated in answers to questions, the general housing demand, including the replacement of defective houses, is undergoing review by my Department in the light of the progress that has already been made, and the altered economic and financial circumstances of the country. It is, however, difficult to arrive at any figure, estimates being necessarily conjectural.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Why does not the right hon. Gentleman subsidise the industry, in order to increase employment?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
I must appeal to hon. Members not to put supplementary questions after every answer. There are a large number of questions on the Paper.
