HC Deb 04 June 1924 vol 174 c1242

asked the Minister of Health whether he proposes to afford to local authorities who are at present engaged in the preparation of housing schemes under the Housing, etc., Act, 1923, the advantage of the increased subsidy now proposed; and if he can state the conditions under which the new financial provisions will be made applicable to existing housing schemes?


As indicated in the White Paper circulated in connection with the Financial Resolution on the Housing Bill, it is proposed that houses provided under proposals approved after 1st February, 1924, shall be eligible for the increased Exchequer contributions contemplated under the Bill if the houses are subject to special conditions as to lettings and rents.
