23. Mr. SEXTON

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is prepared to' promote a short Bill to amend the Special Areas Improvement Development Act, 1934, to give the Commissioner power to make grants for housing direct to the local authority instead of the roundabout means of giving the same Exchequer moneys to housing indirectly, via the housing association?


No, Sir.

24. Mr. EDE

asked the Minister of Labour in whom the houses built with assistance from the Minister by the North Eastern Housing Association, Limited, will be vested when the capital from which such houses are built has been repaid?


The houses will eventually vest in the Association.
