HC Deb 14 May 1935 vol 301 c1541
31. Mr. JOEL

asked the Minister of Health whether the Government have ever considered the desirability of making a grant for the reconditioning of houses, both by local authorities and by private owners; and what are their views on this subject?


Yes, Sir. The Government have given careful consideration to this question, and are of the opinion that the needs of the situation will be adequately met by the Housing (Rural Workers) Acts, 1926–1931, as proposed to be amended by the Housing Bill now before Parliament, and by the general provisions of that Bill.
