§ 31. Mr. DENMAN
asked the Minister of Health whether the Ministry authorised a loan to enable the local authority to build houses on land near Bentley marked on ordnance maps as liable to floods, and, if so, why; and whether any building conditions were suggested to preserve the inhabitants from damage by flood?
Sir H. YOUNG
I am unable to identify the land to which my hon. Friend refers, but, if he will supply me with the date of the sanction and the name of the local authority concerned. I shall be happy to look into the matter and communicate with him.
