HC Deb 13 February 1947 vol 433 c507
28. Mr. J. H. Hare

asked the Minister of Health the causes for the delay in the erection of houses on the Rose Acre Estate, Shepperton.

Mr. Bevan

I am not aware of delay in the erection of the 12 houses for which licences were issued.

Mr. Hare

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the foundations of many of these 12 houses have already been completed, and that they are now overgrown with weeds? In addition to that there are materials available on the site, and if I give him the information, will he please undertake to look into the matter, and see why progress has not been made?

Mr. Bevan

The foundations of a good many houses started are overgrown with snow. If the hon. Member can see the weeds at the present time, he is very lucky.
