HC Deb 06 June 1946 vol 423 cc2151-2
61. Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Health whether his Department has given approval to the use of Maycrete, with its special form of construction, in the housing drive.

Mr. Key

No, Sir. The system is however being investigated further.

Mr. Bossom

Could the Minister look into this with considerable care? The matter has been greatly revised since it was considered on the last occasion.

Mr. Key

Yes, Sir, we have asked the firm concerned for fuller details and we await their arrival.

Mrs. Jean Mann

Could I ask my hon. Friend to get into touch with the Secretary of State for Scotland before he comes to any decision in regard to Maycrete houses? Is he aware that this house has been the subject of a great many complaints from hon. Members on these benches; will he take every one of them out of Scotland and give them to England, and then give us some habitable houses instead?
