100. Mr. MYERS

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the Manchester Director of Housing recently stated that 18 months ago a house containing three bedrooms cost£1,000, and that the same house was now being finished for£480; and whether he can state the approximate cost of the labour involved 18 months ago and the approximate cost to-day in the building of this type of house?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Alfred Mond)

I was not aware that the Director of Housing at Manchester had made such a statement, but I am making inquiries and will communicate with the hon. Member.
