HC Deb 27 January 1953 vol 510 c820
10. Mr. Hale

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many houses were completed by local authorities in England in the year ending the 31st December, 1952; and how many of these had been commenced or had had plans passed and approved, prior to the 31st December, 1951.

Mr. H. Macmillan

I fear I must not anticipate the Housing Quarterly Return. It will be published on 4th February.

Mr. Hale

Will it not show that the right hon. Gentleman has been doing a very remarkable amount of cackling over somebody else's eggs?

Mr. Macmillan

I must not anticipate the return, because if I do so I shall get into trouble with the hon. Member for Reading, South (Mr. Mikardo).
