HC Deb 06 February 1951 vol 483 cc1509-10
7. Mr. William Shepherd

asked the Minister of Local Government and Planning why no record of demolished housing accommodation is kept.

Mr. Dalton

For the reason I gave to the hon. Member on 25th January.

Mr. Shepherd

The right hon. Gentleman's conversion to the needs of economy is welcome, but is it not a fact that if these figures are not produced, a misleading impression of the net housing position may be gained?

Mr. Dalton

The hon. Gentleman need not insinuate. He can take my answer.
