§ 36. Mr. HALLS
asked the Minister of Heatlh whether the Whitefield Urban District Council are giving preference to ex-service men in letting the houses that have been built under the housing schemes; how many have been let to ex-service men and how many have been let to non-service men, how many to people who have come from outside the urban district council area of Whitefield; how many ex-service men's names are now on the lists as applicants; and whether the lists have been closed to further applicants, including ex-service men?
§ Sir A. MOND
The selection of tenants for houses built under the assisted housing schemes is a matter within the discretion of local authorities and is not one in which I am in a position to intervene.
