§ 61. Mr. LUMLEY
asked the Minister of Health whether he has inspected types of working-class houses built of wood and concrete; if so, how many different types has he inspected; and of how many he approves?
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
For the purposes of the 1919 Housing Scheme large numbers of special methods of construction in wood or concrete were examined and approved. Houses were erected in accordance with about 50 such methods.
§ Mr. BECKER
Is the right hon. Gentleman's Department in favour of building wooden houses on the American plan, if they be cheaper than brick houses?
§ Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that none of these other forms of construction are anything like so satisfactory as brick?
