HC Deb 19 November 1919 vol 121 cc943-4W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the housing plans of the Wrexham Rural District Council for 1,700 houses are hung up owing to the lack of funds, that preferential treatment is given to local authorities whose rateable value happens to exceed a certain limit irrespective of the urgent needs of populous mining villages and of the necessity of giving employment to many men during the winter months, and that every effort has been made by the local authority to obtain funds from banks, insurance companies, friendly societies, etc., without success; and whether he will use his influence with the Treasury to make the necessary Grants without delay?


Yes, Sir. This case is receiving further consideration.
