§ 58. Mrs. Castle
> asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what proportion of the houses built by local authorities in 1952 were of the People's House design.
§ Mr. Marples
>: I regret that it is not possible readily to ascertain how many houses completed in 1952 were People's Houses; but 44 per cent. of the three bedroom traditional houses in local authorities' tenders approved in January, 1952, were People's Houses. By December 1952 the proportion had risen to 79 per cent.
