HC Deb 08 July 1943 vol 390 c2245
37. Mr. J. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Health whether he can give an estimate of the number of houses required to be built to provide each family with a separate dwelling?

Mr. E. Brown

As my hon. Friend will appreciate, any estimate must depend on such factors as the definition of a family and a separate dwelling. It is accordingly not possible to be precise, but the figure is of the order of about 500,000.
