69. Mr. L'ESTRANGE MALONE
asked the Minister of Health whether he has received any resolutions which have been passed at regional conferences of the national housing and town-planning councils during the past year pointing out the falling off of the number of houses under construction, the increase in the number of unemployed workers in the building trade, and the tendency to lower the standard of quality and size of working-class dwellings; and whether he intends to take any action?
I have received a number of resolutions on the points referred to, but it must not be taken 1074 that I accept the statements which they contain. As I have previously stated in reply to questions on the subject, the future of the housing subsidy is at present engaging my attention, but I am not yet in a position to make a statement.
