HC Deb 30 January 1947 vol 432 cc1116-7
75. Colonel Wheatley

asked the Minister of Health if, with reference to the announcement some months ago that the local authorities had satisfactorily completed the first phase of the provision of houses, he will now indicate when the second or any subsequent phase is likely to reach a satisfactory conclusion.

The Minister of Health (Mr. Aneurin Bevan)

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the White Paper on the housing programme for 1947.

Colonel Wheatley

Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that thousands of people are suffering miseries, and will he get on with his building programme as hard as he can?

Mr. Bevan

Our people have a better prospect of being housed than they have ever had in the past.
