HC Deb 28 March 1945 vol 409 c1352
34. Mr. Gallacher

asked the Minister of Works whether he has given consideration to the resolution of the Fife County Council on the Government's temporary housing, forwarded to him by the hon. Member for West Fife; and whether he has any statement to make.

The Minister of Works (Mr. Duncan Sandys)

Yes, Sir. I would refer the hon. Member to statements on this subject made both by the Minister of Health and myself, in the course of the Debate on Housing last week.

Mr. Gallacher

Is the Minister aware that the Fife county council has sites waiting, and that people are waiting to go into the houses, when the houses are supplied on the sites; and can he tell us when the houses are going to be sent and erected on the sites?

Mr. Sandys

I cannot give the hon. Member off-hand the dates when houses will be delivered to particular localities, but any houses that have been promised will be delivered.

Mr. Gallacher

Can the Minister give an approximate date when they will get these houses?

Hon. Members

Two years.
