HC Deb 01 December 1938 vol 342 c594
67. Mr. R. C. Morrison

asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered the copy sent to him of a resolution, passed unanimously at the Public Health Congress, calling for extension of the 1930 housing subsidy for a further five years; and what action he proposes to take?

Mr. Elliot

I understand that a resolution in the terms described by the hon. Member was passed by one of the bodies represented at the Public Health Services Congress, but has not yet been considered by the Council of that Congress.

Mr. Morrison

In view of the fact that the right hon. Gentleman took the trouble to open this Congress, will he give attention to this resolution in his official capacity?

Mr. Elliot

I think it would be discourteous of me to do so before the Council of the Congress itself has considered it.
