HC Deb 09 July 1919 vol 117 c1844W

asked the Minister of Health whether, under the terms of the Housing Bill, it is contemplated that non-manual workers, such as clerks, insurance agents, and similar middle-class business and professional men, shall be eligible as tenants for houses built or acquired by a local authority; and, if so, will he take steps to make the fact known as widely as possible?


There is no provision in the existing Housing Acts or in the Housing Bill at present before Parliament which would prevent non-manual workers from becoming tenants of houses provided under those enactments by the local authorities.
