37. Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the Middlesbrough Corporation, having regard to the slow rate of progress in their existing housing schemes, have recently held conferences with the local 2183 building trade operatives who have guaranteed to find the necessary labour for a scheme for providing houses by direct labour; and, under these circumstances, will he reconsider his refusal to allow the Middlesbrough Corporation to erect 30 houses by direct labour?
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
I am prepared to reopen this question, and have arranged for my officers to discuss the question raised with representatives of the local authority.
