HC Deb 18 December 1945 vol 417 c1087
1. Mr. McAllister

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning what is the attitude of his Department to the complaints of the Poplar Borough Council that the L.C.C. is insisting on its adopting a rehousing density standard of 38.5 houses per acre; and whether it is the intention of his Department to allow such a deterioration of the housing density standards of the working class established by the Tudor Walters Committee during the first world war.

The Minister of Town and Country-Planning (Mr.Silkin)

I have received no complaint from the Poplar Borough Council on this matter, but inasmuch as it might come before me for formal determination, it would be improper for me to express any opinion upon it at the present time.

Mr. McAllister

Would the Minister care to say a word on the second part of the Question?

Mr. Silkin

I have said a word on the second part of the Question.

Hon. Members

We could not hear.
