§ Mr. GILBERT
asked the Minister for Health whether the London County Council has submitted any housing plans of new 1846W cottages on their Old Oak Common estate; if he will state the number of cottages to be provided; if his Department has passed the plans; if any conditions were made by his Department; and, if so, what were they?
§ Dr. ADDISON
Plans for the erection of 130 cottages on the estate to which the hon. Member refers have been submitted to the Ministry by the county council. In view of the present special urgency, these plans have been approved as submitted. No conditions have been attached, but the Ministry have notified the council, that, in the absence of exceptional circumstances, they will require higher standards to be complied with in future proposals.
