HC Deb 21 September 1931 vol 256 c1277

asked the hon. Member for Central Leeds (Mr. Denman), as representing the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, whether any limit has been placed upon the value of houses which may be erected on the Hampstead Garden Suburb; and, if so, what that limit is?

Mr. DENMAN (Second Church Estates Commissioner)

In the Hampstead Garden Suburb are included areas leased by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners to the Garden Suburb Trust and to the Co-partnership Tenants Limited. In both cases, as is usual in building leases, minimum prime costs of houses are prescribed. There is no single limit, but the minimum costs are fixed in accordance with situation and other estate considerations.
