§ Mr. EDE
asked the Minister of Health how many of the houses approved for building under the Housing (No. 2) Bill will be built for sale and how many for letting; whether in any cases, and, if so, in how many, a maximum price for sale or letting has been placed on the house when its erection has been sanctioned; and how many houses are being built by local authorities and how many by private builders?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
I have no information in regard to the first part of the question. As regards the last part, 16,868 houses have been approved to date which will rank for assistance under the new Bill, and of these 13,382 will be built by local authorities and 3,486 by private builders. In no case has a condition as to sale or letting value been imposed.
