§ 49. Mr. B. SMITH
asked the Minister of Health what local authorities in England and Wales have been granted permission to transfer houses built under the Housing, &c., Act, 1923, to the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1924; and what changes, if any, were made in the rents at which the transferred houses were let?
I would refer the hon. Member to the replies given to the hon. Member for Bedwellty (Mr. C. Edwards) on the 18th and 23rd of last month. There is no power to transfer houses built and let under the 1923 Act to the 1924 Act.
§ Mr. SMITH
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in the last few months one local authority has made application to transfer the incidence of the rate under the 1923 Act on the loan to the Wheatley Act of 1924? Can he give us the name and the amount?
They were given. I beg the hon. Member's pardon. there were two questions, and I was looking at the other one. I do not gather that the names were given, but I will give the hon. Member the names with pleasure.
