HC Deb 15 February 1922 vol 150 c993
32. Mr. DOYLE

asked the Minister of Health what is the position of the Government in regard to the carrying out of the housing proposals of local authorities; how many schemes have been sanctioned; what is the total expenditure to which his Department is committed; and how many houses have been erected in the United Kingdom during the last three months?


In reply to the first part of the question, I would refer to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for the Heywood Division (Mr. Halls) on the 9th February. The number of separate schemes approved for local authorities and public utility societies is 4,372. The capital commitments in respect of the schemes for which tenders have been approved amount approximately to £178,000,000. The number of houses completed in England and Wales under the housing schemes during the last three months is 28,004.
