37. Mr. WILLIAMS
asked the Minister of Health what proposals His Majesty's 995 Government intend to bring forward in the early future for meeting the great and still continuing dearth of houses?
§ Sir A. MOND
In view of the large programme of housing still to be completed, and the continued reduction in prices, I hope that further State intervention in any form will not be required, and that the building industry will return to its pre-War economic basis.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the industry has failed in the endeavour to supply the smaller houses?
