HC Deb 23 January 1930 vol 234 cc327-8
65. Mr. BUTLER

asked the Minister of Health whether he can now declare his policy for an improvement of rural housing conditions?


I would suggest that the hon. Member should await the proposals for legislation which I hope shortly to be able to submit to the House.

Captain EDEN

Will the right hon. Gentleman take any steps to expedite legislation now in force?


Most certainly. I have done everything I can to expedite the matter.

Lieut.-Colonel FREMANTLE

Do we understand that there is going to be a separate Rural Housing Bill, or is the right hon. Gentleman going to deal with little bits of rural housing in his slum clearance scheme?


I am interested in this interest which has been shown. I must ask hon. Members to wait and see.
