§ 20. Mr. T. WILLIAMS
asked the Minister of Health how many local authorities whose applications to erect houses under the terms of the 1924 Housing Act 1254 were out of date, have, on consideration, been permitted to complete their schemes; and how many houses are involved?
Sir H. YOUNG
The hon. Member will see from the circular which was issued to local authorities on the 22nd instant, a copy of which I am sending to him, that local authorities who consider that their proposals are entitled to consideration under the proviso to Section 1 of the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1933, which only became law last week, have been invited to submit their applications, supported by full particulars of the grounds on which they are based, before the 30th June next, and that I propose immediately after that date, in consultation with the Treasury, to proceed to the approval of such applications as are found to fall within the limits of the Act.
