§ 37. Mr. Butcher
asked the Minister of Health how many local authorities have transferred to building societies the mortgages they undertook under the Small Dwellings Acquisition Acts; and if he will state the number of houses covered by such arrangements.
§ Mr. Bevan
I regret that no information is available or could readily be obtained as to the number of local authorities who have received repayment 1273 of advances made under the Small Dwellings Acquisition Acts from borrowers who intend to transfer the mortgages to building societies, or of the number of houses covered by such arrangements.
