51. Mr. DAVID ADAMS
asked the Minister of Health the number of building societies in England and Wales which are prepared at the present time to make advances on mortgage to house builders with the assistance of guarantees from the local authorities under the terms of the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1933?
§ Mr. R. S. HUDSON
My right hon. Friend is unable to give any precise figure, but he understands that building societies in general are prepared to make advances where a guarantee from the local authority is forthcoming.
