HC Deb 01 December 1927 vol 211 cc692-3
34. Mr. LOOKER

asked the Minister of Health whether he is taking any steps to secure the erection of houses to be let at rentals not exceeding 10s. a week, inclusive of rates; and can he make any statement on the matter?


I have already suggested to local authorities that they should in future especially devote themselves to the provision of houses which can be let at rents within the means of the less well-paid workers, and the reduction which has taken place in the prices of houses is undoubtedly facilitating the erection of this type of house.

Colonel DAY

Can the right hon. Gentleman say, in answer to the first part of the question, whether he is taking any other steps than making suggestions to the local authorities?
