HC Deb 06 July 1920 vol 131 c1256W

Mr. LUNN asked the Minister of Health at what date the increase of the building subsidy by £100 came into force; what is the number of houses in respect of which the subsidy has been guaranteed before that date; what is the number in respect of which subsidies have been sanctioned or applied for since that date; and whether it is proposed to extend the period for completion in respect of which the subsidy is payable?

Dr. ADDISON: The increased subsidy is applicable to all houses commenced on or after 1st April and which comply with the conditions of the scheme. Before the 1st April, certificates for 4,185 houses had been issued; since that date certificates for 7,326 houses have been issued (according to the returns submitted by Housing Commissioners up to 25th June, 1920). It has been decided to introduce legislation to extend for a further year the period during which grants may be made.
