HC Deb 28 October 1919 vol 120 c497W

asked the Minister of Health the number of new houses erected since the Housing Act became operative, the number in course of erection, and the number provided for in the schemes submitted by local authorities, co-operative societies, and public utility societies?


Sites have been selected by local authorities which will provide for more than 450,000 houses, and approval has been given to sites which will suffice for more than 200,000 houses. Plans for 27,500 houses and tenders for more than 8,000 houses have also been approved, but I am not able to give the information asked for as to the different stages of the work in the various cases.
