HC Deb 16 April 1923 vol 162 c1683

asked the Minister of Health if he has seen a resolution passed at a conference of local authorities, held at Cardiff on 24th March last, protesting against the proposed grants towards new housing schemes as being totally inadequate; and whether he will consult with representatives of the Welsh local authorities upon the matter before the Second Reading of the Housing, etc. (No. 2) Bill?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Neville Chamberlain)

I have seen a copy of the resolution passed by the conference of representatives of urban district councils of South Wales and 'Monmouthshire to which the question refers. The action taken appears to me to be due to some misapprehension of the position, and I am communicating with the authorities in the matter.
