HC Deb 15 March 1928 vol 214 c2100
47. Dr. SALTER

asked the Minister of Health the number of local authorities in England and Wales that are now building houses under the 1923 and 1924 Housing Acts by direct labour; and the amount of reduction that has been effected in the cost of such houses since the date of the Housing Acts (Revision of Contributions) Order, 1926?


At the 1st March, 1928, 43 local authorities were building houses by direct labour in England and Wales under the Acts in question. I have no record of the final costs of houses completed by direct labour during the period referred to in the last part of the question.
