HC Deb 08 April 1937 vol 322 c349
64. Captain Heilgers

asked the Minister of Health what steps he is taking to bring the facilities of the Housing (Rural Workers) Act to the notice of those concerned?

Sir K. Wood

Experience has shown that in those areas where the working of this Act has been most successful, sustained publicity has been an important factor. In pursuance of a suggestion of my Central Housing Advisory Committee I have had a poster, a folder and a booklet prepared for distribution by local authorities. All three are illustrated and draw attention in simple language to the advantages of the Act. Local authorities are, I am glad to say, freely availing themselves of this provision.

Captain Heilgers

Can my right hon. Friend arrange for a copy of the very valuable document recently issued on the subject to be placed in the Members' Tea Room?

Sir K. Wood

Yes, so far as I am concerned.
