HC Deb 12 May 1931 vol 252 c996
75. Mr. McELWEE

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the efforts made by the people of Crocken-hill to get houses built to meet their requirements; and will he make representations to the Dartford Rural District Council thereon?


My right hon. Friend has received no representations on this matter. He understands that the District Council are providing a number of houses within half a mile of Crockenhill.


Is the Minister aware that this is an effort to depopulate the village and to transfer the population to Swanley Junction, and will the Minister help to put a stop to it?


I think my answer covers the point, but, if the hon. Member will communicate with me on the geography of the matter, I shall be able to look into it.
