HC Deb 01 November 1945 vol 415 c597
12. Mr. Renton

asked the Minister of Health whether he is now in a position to give a decision with regard to the offer made by the commander of the R.A.F. Station, War boys, to the St. Ives R.D.C., Hunts., to provide R.A.F. personnel for building houses, as explained by the hon. Member for Huntingdonshire in a letter dated 16th September, to which he replied on 12th October to the effect that the matter was being considered by His Majesty's Government.

Mr. Bevan
