§ Mr. FOREMAN
asked the First Commissioner of Works if his Department has contracted or is about to contract with the Borough of Louth to build 200 houses; whether, if this is so, his Department will confer the same privilege on other districts where it may be desired: whether his Department intends to undertake similar housing contracts in other parts of the country where it may think such work to be necessary; and the general policy of his Department on the whole matter?
§ Dr. ADDISON
I am arranging, in order to assist the Council, that the Office of Works shall prepare, and carry out on behalf of the Borough Council of Louth, an extension of the local housing scheme. Similar arrangements have been made in a few exceptional cases. The question whether any extensions of these arrangements can be adopted is at present under consideration.
