§ Mr. LANE-FOX
asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether the Board have any information not available to the general public showing that cottages can be provided in rural districts in the North of England at an economic rent, covering site building, sinking fund, water supply, and drainage, of 3s. per week; and, if so, whether he can publish such information and so encourage the provision of cottages in such districts?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I must refer the hon. Member to the Report of the Departmental Committee on Buildings for Small Holdings. The Board have no information which is not shared with that portion of the general public which has inquired into and considered the question of rural housing and studied the report to which I have referred.
