§ 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?
Sir H. YOUNG
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.
§ Mr. McENTEE
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?
