HC Deb 20 January 1949 vol 460 c309
5. Mr. Austin

asked the Minister of Health when he expects to receive revised housing lists from local authorities; and if he will publish in the next Local Authority Housing Returns the appropriate figures.

Mr. Bevan

I have asked for returns by 31st March. After the figures have been examined I will consider the question of publication.

Mr. Bing

Will the Minister also consider the cases of people who, because of a variation between the points schemes of the various authorities, are not on the housing list of any authority?

Mr. Bevan

I am afraid that as this is a screening of the lists of the various authorities it would be awfully difficult to consider people who are not on the lists, because they would be an unknown quantity.
