57. Miss WARD
asked the Minister of Health whether local authorities will qualify for subsidy under the Overcrowding Act by erecting special houses for old people and using the houses vacated by these persons for housing people for whom accommodation has to be provided as a result of the provisions of the Overcrowding Act?
§ Sir K. WOOD
Exchequer subsidy would be available for houses built in the circumstances indicated by my hon. Friend, if the conditions of the Act are otherwise satisfied. I referred to the desirability of building special houses for old people in a Circular which I issued in October last, and I will send my hon. Friend a copy.
Will the right hon. Gentleman convey to hon. and right hon. Gentlemen opposite what the National Government have done for the housing of the people?
§ Mr. TINKER
Will the right hon. Gentleman give the same privilege to each Member of Parliament by letting them have a copy of the Circular he is sending to the hon. Lady?
