HC Deb 20 February 1919 vol 112 c1190W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he will state what actual building operations are in process, and in what districts, towards the provision of better housing accommodation, for the people of this country?


So far as housing schemes to be assisted upon the terms announced in the Local Government Board's Circular of the 6th February are concerned, I am unable to state that actual building operations have yet commenced, but eleven proposals have been approved, subject to tender, since 6th February, when that Circular was issued. Alarge number of schemes are known to be in course of preparation.
