§ 18. Commander Pursey
asked the Minister of Health the number of houses in Hull which were accepted as total loss by war damage; the number of new houses completed; the number now under construction and approved, respectively; and the probable number to be approved for the second half of 1948.
§ Mr. Bevan
The number of houses in Hull destroyed or damaged beyond repair by enemy action is approximately 5,500. As regards the second and third parts of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to Appendix B to the Housing Return. As regards the last part of the Question, the local authority have been authorised to go to tender for a further 267 houses.
