Sufficient time has not yet elapsed since the passing of the Housing Act, 1949, for any indication to be given.

Is the Minister aware of the sore need for reconditioning and for additional cottages in rural areas, and will he press forward the machinery whereby the provisions of this Act can be made available?
§ Mr. J. H. Hare
Could the right hon. Gentleman inform the House how far the recently announced cuts in the capita] housing programme will affect this reconditioning of rural cottages?
