HC Deb 01 March 1945 vol 408 cc1541-2
20. Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Health when he will be in a position to circulate to local authorities the revisions recommended to his model by-laws to enable local authorities to permit the use of the latest forms of construction.

Mr. Willink

The clauses in the model by-laws were framed so as to permit of all reasonable forms of construction. As yet, I have received no recommendations for any specific amendment, but if my hon. Friend has any particular difficulty in mind and would let me have details I will gladly look into the matter.

Mr. Bossom

Could my right hon. and learned Friend look at his own pamphlet which recommends certain forms of construction that the model by-laws did not contemplate when they were produced?

Mr. Willink

This is, I think, the third time I have invited my hon. Friend to put specific suggestions to me with regard to the amendment of the by-laws, but I have not had any specific recommendation.


I have suggested to my right hon. and learned Friend that his own pamphlets do this very thing.
