HC Deb 07 July 1948 vol 453 c366
35. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies to what extent re-housing is proceeding in Malta; and on whose authority is the bulk of the available building materials being diverted to the reconstruction of bombed churches.

Mr. Rees-Williams

This matter is entirely one for the Malta Government, and in view of their constitutional position, I fear it would not be proper for me to answer the Question.
