§ 30. Mr. HURD
asked the Minister of Health if he will make available for Members of Parliament copies of his Ministry's new circular to local authorities as to their co-operation with the Council for the Preservation of Rural England and the Royal Institute of British Architects in the operation of the Housing (Rural Workers) Act, 1926, so as to preserve the picturesque character of English villages?
Copies of the circular in question (Ministry of Health Circular 940) may be obtained by hon. Members on application in the usual manner to the Controller, Stationery Office.
I think the hon. Member can get a copy free by filling up a form, but, as the cost is only one penny, he may not think it worth while.
§ 47. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Minister of Health what is the nature of the arrangements which have been made to enable local authorities who propose to carry out works of repair and reconditioning under the Housing (Rural Workers) Act, and to preserve the amenities to their districts, to receive expert advice?
I have recently issued a circular to local authorities setting out the arrangements made in regard to the matter referred to, and I will furnish the hon. Member with a copy of it.
