HC Deb 05 December 1935 vol 307 c282
29. Sir P. HURD

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the demand for more family houses at low rentals would be largely met in many rural centres at a minimum cost to the public if smaller houses suited for aged couples and the like were included in new housing schemes; and whether he will impress this fact upon rural housing authorities following upon the resolution passed at the last annual conference of the Rural District Councils Association of England and Wales?


Yes, Sir. In a memorandum on the Housing Act, 1935, issued on 22nd October last, a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend, the attention of local authorities has once again been drawn to the advantage of including in housing schemes special homes for aged persons.
