§ 99 and 100. Mr. ERNEST BROWN
asked the Minister of Health (1) if he has formed any estimate of the number of working-class houses that should be replaced during the decade 1921–31 by reason of their having become unfit for human habitation; and, if so, what is the number and on what basis has it been estimated;
(2) if he has formed any estimate of the number of working-class houses that should be erected in the years 1921 to 1931 to meet the probable increase in the number of families during that decade; and, if so, what the number is and on what basis it has been estimated?
The question of what housing programme should be adopted is at present under consideration, and I would suggest that the hon. Member should reserve his point until my right hon. Friend is in a position to place the Government's proposals before the House.
