§ Lord H. CAVENDISH - BENTINCK
asked the Minister of Health whether house builders are reluctant to proceed with building operations while the subsidy is not assured by legal enactment; and whether, in view of the fact that the best time of the year for building is rapidly passing away, the Government will arrange that the remaining stages of the Housing Bill shall be taken as soon as possible?
§ Sir A. MOND
I am well aware of the facts stated by the Noble Lord. The Bill will now be proceeded with in the other1074W House as quickly as possible. In view of the non-controversial character of the Bill, I hope that house-builders will be disposed to proceed without necessarily waiting for the measure to be placed on the Statute Book.
