HC Deb 21 February 1946 vol 419 c1279
12. Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Minister of Health if he will state the national total of the waiting lists for houses now in the possession of all housing authorities.

Mr. Bevan

I regret that this information is not available. It will, in any event, be appreciated that there is a good deal of duplication between the lists of different housing authorities, since many people have applied for a house in more than one district.

Mr. Allighan

Is the Minister quite satisfied that his plans for meeting the demands of the unhoused population are sufficient to meet the needs of registered housing authorities?

Mr. Bevan

I believe the plans are sufficient. Whether the development of the plans will be adequate I do not know.
