HC Deb 02 April 1936 vol 310 cc2132-3
67 and 68. Mr. SEXTON

asked the Minister of Health (1) what is the term of years from the beginning of a housing scheme under a housing association to the dissolution of the housing association concerned;

(2) whether, until the dissolution of the housing association concerned, the funds arising from the houses erected in the district of each local authority after the houses have been cleared of debt will be applied for the benefit of that district?


No term of years is fixed for the life of housing associations. I have no reason to anticipate that any funds which may be available, when debt has been paid off, will be used otherwise than for housing purposes.


Does that mean that the local authorities are to be handed over derelict property after 60 years or so, after the housing association has taken off the cream?


No, Sir, I do not think so.
