HC Deb 09 March 1944 vol 397 c2181
36. Mr. Craven-Ellis

asked the Minister of Health what is the number of local authorities involved in his estimate of 4,000,000 new houses required; and the number of houses for each local authority certified as unfit or overcrowded.

Mr. Willink

The figures I have given relate to England and Wales and cover all the 1,469 housing authorities. As regards the second part of the question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave on 30th November last to my hon. Friend the Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Mathers), of which I am sending him a copy.
