I understand that the numbers of unoccupied houses on the Becontree Estate at the dates in question were 398, 160 and 100 respectively.
The answer is fairly obvious. It is also obvious that the number of empty houses has rapidly come down.
§ Mr. R. MORRISON
Will the right hon. Gentleman make representations to the London County Council that, if they find any difficulty in getting tenants for their houses, they will allow people from Greater London to apply for them?
They are not finding so much difficulty as they were, as the numbers are coming down so rapidly.
