HC Deb 09 November 1950 vol 480 c1114
42. Wing Commander Bullus

asked the Minister of Health if, in view of the increased number of applicants for houses, he will increase the allocation of houses fixed at 250 for the Wembley Borough Council for the year 1951.

Mr. Bevan

In accordance with the undertaking already given to the council, the allocation will be reviewed during the year in the light of progress.

Wing Commander Bullus

Is the Minister prepared to grant a subsidy to the local council for the building of what are termed halfway houses for evicted persons and vagrants who become the temporary responsibility of the local authority?

Mr. Bevan

That is another issue.
