HC Deb 23 February 1938 vol 332 cc361-2
80. Colonel Nathan

asked the Minister of Health whether he can furnish a detailed list of the local authorities in England and Wales which have completed community centres or buildings of similar type on their housing estates and who are now in course of erecting such centres, respectively?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health (Mr. Bernays)

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the list which was circulated on 21st December last in answer to a question by the hon. Member for Consett (Mr. David Adams), of which I am sending him a copy. I have no additions to make to that list. Proposals for the provision of community centres in Durham City, in Oxford and in Pontypridd are at present before my right hon. Friend.

Colonel Nathan

May I ask whether, when the schemes are submitted by local authorities to the Minister of Health for approval, encouragement will be given to local authorities to include community centres in their plans?

Mr. Bernays

Yes, Sir. My right hon. Friend is most anxious that as many as possible of the local authorities should include community centres in their schemes.
