HC Deb 30 January 1947 vol 432 c1117
78. Mr. George Wallace

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that men medically unfit for service in His Majesty's Forces are being handicapped in their application for houses owing to the fact that points are given for service in His Majesty's Forces by most local authorities but that medical unfitness to serve is not taken care of; and whether he is prepared to issue a memorandum to local authorities on this point.

Mr. Bevan

The selection of tenants is by statute vested in local authorities who are best able, from their local knowledge, to determine the relative urgency of individual applications.
