HC Deb 04 August 1919 vol 119 c47W

asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been drawn to the tenders obtained by the Leeds Corporation for the erection of forty-seven houses on the Hawksworth estate which amount to £42,750, being over £909 per house, exclusive of land and street making; and if he will decline to sanction the erection of houses at such a price, as being quite out of reach of those for whom they are intended, and must inevitably entail a heavy loss to the taxpayer?


The tenders received in connection with the scheme referred to have not yet been submitted to the Ministry of Health, but the question of cost will, of course, receive very careful consideration.
