§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (Mr. Ernest Marples)
In 1953, 4,211 dwellings with four bedrooms and 36 dwellings with five or more bedrooms were completed. The figures for 1951 were 4,295 and 69, respectively. These figures apply only to houses built by local authorities and new town corporations.
§ Mr. Marples
There is hardly any difference in the figures as between 1951 and 1953. All the evidence now shows that the size of the family is decreasing, and surely it is the correct policy to see that the number of rooms in a house corresponds with the number of people in the family?
§ Mr. Emrys Hughes
Could the hon. Gentleman explain if that document "The Right Road for Britain" has been paid for by the same British intelligencers?
