HC Deb 13 February 1947 vol 433 c506
25. Mr. J. Morrison

asked the Minister of Health if, in publishing future figures of new houses completed, he will give totals of those occupied by agricultural workers.

Mr. Bevan

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Morrison

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that unless the ratio of new houses in agricultural districts is increased considerably, it is a very poor lookout for agricultural areas?

Mr. Bevan

It is a very much rosier outlook than they have ever had.

Mr. M. Lindsay

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that so little confidence have the people in the Government building houses at all, that a constituent of mine has already entered his daughter's name for a house, although the daughter is only three years of age?

Mr. Bevan

The hon. Member's presence in this House is an indication of the intelligence of some of his constituents.
