37. Miss WARD
asked the Minister of Labour whether it is the intention of the special commissioner to arrange for the building of houses in the areas he serves; and, if so, what information can he give the House on the subject?
The Commissioner has this matter under consideration, but I am not yet in a position to make a statement on the subject.
May we have a statement on the subject at a very early date or on the legislation which is now being discussed in regard to housing?
My hon. Friend may rest assured that the information will be given as soon as we are in a position to give it.
Can the hon. Member say whether it is the intention of the Commissioner to build these houses from money directly obtained from the Treasury, without any financial obligation on the local authorities?
