HC Deb 05 December 1946 vol 431 c480
12. Mr. Thomas Reid

asked the Minister of Health what is the proposed cost of each of the permanent houses to be built at Wroughton, near Swindon.

Mr. Bevan

The proposed cost of these houses cannot be stated as an acceptable tender has not yet been obtained.

Mr. Reid

Is it intended to proceed quickly with these badly needed houses?

Mr. Bevan

I am not prepared to accept tenders which are too high.
