HC Deb 24 April 1951 vol 487 cc203-4
43. Sir Waldron Smithers

asked the Minister of Local Government and Planning if he will give details of the requirements necessary to include premises under the headings under the title, "Use of Existing Premises," on page two of Command Paper 8199, Housing Summary, 28th February 1951.

Mr. Dalton

This heading covers all dwellings except houses built since 31st March, 1945.

Sir W. Smithers

If a house has had one pane of glass replaced, is it included among the number of houses provided by the Socialist Government since the war?

Mr. Dalton

I do not understand the supplementary question, but I do not see why the hon. Gentleman should not understand the document, which is perfectly simple.

Colonel Gomme-Duncan

Is not this a very unfavourable comparison of intellectual achievements on the part of the two Members?
