§ 66. Major OWEN
asked the Minister of Health how many demolition orders have been made by his Department at the request of the Lleyn Rural District Council; and how many houses have been built by that council under the various Housing Acts?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Mr. Shakespeare)
My right hon. Friend assumes that the first part of the hon. Member's question refers to clearance orders made under the Housing Act, 1930. No such orders have yet been received in the Department from the Lleyn Rural District Council, but my right hon. Friend is informed that orders comprising 94 houses will shortly be submitted, and that proposals for the erection of houses under the Housing Acts, 1930 and 1935, are under consideration.
§ Major OWEN
In view of the urgent need of houses in those rural areas, will the hon. Gentleman use as much pressure as possible upon this council to proceed with this very important work?
§ Mr. G. GRIFFITHS
Is it not a fact that in the main urban districts, this district has the highest tuberculosis mortality?
