Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the Minister of Health if he will state the extra cost per house involved in erecting 12 houses to the acre, as compared with 20 houses to the acre, in cases where the frontages of the sites are the same in both lay-outs?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
The extra cost will vary according to the relative price of land and costs of road and sewer works, and I do not think it would be possible to give an average figure.
§ Sir T. BENNETT
asked the Minister of Health if he will arrange for a model of a two-storied house, reproducing the dimensions prescribed in Clause 1, Subsection (2), of the Housing Bill, to be erected within easy access of the House, so that Members may be able to visualise the provision which the Bill proposes to make for the accommodation of the house-less poor?
§ Mr. CHAMBERLAIN
I scarcely think that I should be justified in adopting688W this suggestion, as hon. Members can see houses of these types on the housing estates of almost every local authority.
