HC Deb 22 February 1945 vol 408 c929
16. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Health which person, or what body, decides who shall be the inhabitants of the new houses; under what system of priority are they allocated; and is he satisfied that the allocations made to date have been made impartially.

Mr. Willink

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on 14th December to my hon. Friend the Member for Holland with Boston (Mr. Butcher) which explained the principles on which tenants are selected for council houses. I have no reason to suppose that local authorities are failing to observe these principles.

Sir W. Smithers

Has not the right hon. and learned Gentleman received complaints on the lines indicated in the Question?

Mr. Willink

No, Sir, not that I can remember.
