HC Deb 20 December 1934 vol 296 c1306
21. Mr. McENTEE

asked the Minister of Health whether during the past two years any local authorities have applied for sanction to erect, under the 1925, 1930 or 1933 Housing Acts, timber-framed houses and, if so, whether sanction has been granted; and whether his Department has any objection to the erection of such houses providing they comply with the local by-laws?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative; the second part does not therefore arise. As regards the last part, I would draw the hon. Member's attention to the answer given to the question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for Penrith and Cockermouth (Mr. Dixey) on 7th November last.


The right hon. Gentleman has not answered the last part of the question. I want to know the policy of the Ministry, whether they would be prepared to sanction any such erection if it is in accordance with the local by-laws?


That is precisely the point that is answered in the previous question.
