HC Deb 28 November 1945 vol 416 c1302
26. Viscount Hinchingbrooke

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many people in Malta now fall within the Governor's definition as living in unsatisfactory conditions; and what was the comparable figure 12 months ago.

Mr. George Hall

2,579 families were registered as living in unsatisfactory conditions on 1st November last, as compared with 3,620 families on 1st November, 1944; a decrease therefore of approximately one-third.

Viscount Hinchingbrooke

Are we to deduce from that reply that the right hon. Gentleman is satisfied with the rehousing measures that are being undertaken?

Mr. Hall

I will never be satisfied until housing conditions are very much improved.
