31. Mrs. WARD
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the existence of a great shortage of houses for the working classes in Essington, in the Cannock rural district; and whether he is satisfied that steps are being taken to deal with the situation?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
Representations have recently been received from the parish council of Essington to the effect 1512 that further houses are needed in the parish. My right hon. Friend is causing inquiry to be made into the matter and will inform my hon. Friend of the result.
