HC Deb 16 March 1939 vol 345 c594
59. Mr. Pilkington

asked the Minister of Health the number of housing estates, houses, and community centres, respectively, built by the Liverpool Corporation since 1931?

Mr. Elliot

There are seven such estates, containing 9,389 houses. Facilities for communal activities exist on four of the estates and proposals to provide fully equipped community centres have been approved in principle by the council.

Mr. Pilkington

In view of the fact that Liverpool has housed some 30,000 people in Huyton, which is just outside the boundaries, cannot my right hon. Friend start a community centre in this area, where it is very badly needed?

Mr. Elliot

I think it is primarily the responsibility of the local authorities.
