HC Deb 26 March 1936 vol 310 c1404
63. Mr. JOEL

asked the Minister of Health whether, in the course of the next two years, he will investigate the possibility of saturation point being reached in connection with the construction of houses for people who can afford to buy them or can rent them on terms within their means, with the object of ascertaining the residuum of the population which will be left without houses which they cannot obtain unless with State or rate assistance?


The probable course of building supply and demand in the next few years is already receiving my close attention, with particular regard to the need of those who can lot afford to obtain suitable accommodation at an economic rent. The activities of local authorities have already been concentrated on the latter need which will continue to be given priority.
