HC Deb 30 March 1922 vol 152 c1549

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the Aberdare Council's housing scheme has turned out to be a failure; that the original estimate per house was £750; that only 23 houses have been completed during the last two years; and that the cost has gone over £2,000 per house; and will he, in the interests of the citizens of Aberdare, institute an inquiry at once, with a view to ending such use of the ratepayers' money?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Alfred Mond)

I have already caused a special investigation to be made into the progress and cost of this scheme, and the inspector's report is now under consideration.
