HC Deb 12 December 1934 vol 296 cc384-5
53. Mr. THORNE

asked the Minister of Health whether he can give to the House any information in regard to the direct labour housing scheme of the urban district council of Brownhills, Staffordshire; the number of three-bedroom type houses that have been erected; the cost of the house and land; what is the principal and interest, and the amount allowed for repairs and management; the approximate weekly rent and rates per week; and the inclusive rent per week?


It is assumed that the hon. Member refers to the houses erected by the Brownhills Urban District Council under the Housing Act, 1930. Fifty-two houses have been built under this Act by direct labour. Of these, 28 are of the three-bedroomed type. I will send the hon. Member the remaining details for which he asks.
