§ Mr. GILBERT
asked the Minister for Health whether his attention has been drawn to certain figures recently given of prices received by tender by the London County Council for building two-, three-, four-, and five-room cottages, without the cost of land, roads, or sewers; whether these figures are fair and reasonable from a housing point of view; for what class of cottage these prices are; in what district of London they are to be built; and can he furnish any more particulars about these tenders?
§ Major ASTOR
I understand that the London County Council have obtained tenders for the erection of three-, four-, and five-roomed cottages at Hammersmith and Norbury. The tenders proposed to be994W accepted by the county council have not yet been submitted to the Ministry of Health, and I am therefore unable to give any particulars respecting them.
