asked the Minister of Health the number of houses he has authorised to be built that will be completed this year; and the total number of applicants for those houses registered by local authorities?1864W
§ Sir A. MOND
The housing schemes of local authorities and the builders' subsidy scheme provide for 218,000 houses. Of these, 120,000 have already been completed. There remain some 98,000 to be finished, and I hope that a large proportion will be completed during the coming year. I have no information as to the number of applications received by local authorities.
