§ 2. Mr. W. Shepherd
asked the Minister of Health the number of people now living in houses which have actually been condemned, and the number living in houses which would be condemned if the normal standards were being observed.
§ Mr. R. S. Hudson
May I ask whether these houses are included in the Minister's estimate of 750,000 houses required to meet immediate needs?
§ Mr. Alpass
Is the Minister aware that in my constituency there are large numbers of persons living in houses which were condemned 40 years ago?
§ Mr. David Eccles
Is the Minister aware that a lot of these condemned houses need some first-aid repairs, and that it would be a reasonable use of materials and labour to make arrangements for those first-aid repairs to be done? At present they cannot be done.
