HC Deb 29 June 1933 vol 279 cc1647-8
27. Mr. HICKS

asked the Minister of Health how many conferences of local builders and representatives of building societies and public utility societies have been convened or held by local authorities in England and Wales to discuss the provisions of the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1933, as recommended in Ministry of Health Circular No. 1334?


Such conferences have been convened by local authorities in all parts of the country, but I have no sttistical information as to the number held up to date.


Does not the Minister consider it important that he should be informed of the number of conferences being held in response to the Circular sent out, in order that his programme for housing may be expedited?

to such loans was explained some time ago in an official statement, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy. If he will give me particulars of any case he has in mind, I shall be glad to look into it.

Forward to
