HC Deb 07 June 1928 vol 218 c340
28. Mr. PARKINSON (for Mr. HAYES)

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that, though he stated in the House on 16th November, 1925, that the Teignmouth Council had appointed a housing committee which was investigating the question of suitable and available sites for houses, the council has no housing committee and that it has not yet selected sites for housing purposes; and what action he proposes to take in the matter?


The hon. Member has been misinformed. I understand that the local authority in question has a housing committee and has, in fact, purchased a site of about three and a-quarter acres and entered into a contract for the erection of 28 houses, eight of which have been commenced. I have sanctioned the requisite loans to enable the local authority to proceed with the scheme.
