§ Captain TERRELL
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the Government statement that the new houses are to let at an average rental to include rates of 9s. a week, he proposes to fix a limit of means above which would-he tenants will be debarred from benefiting by a State subsidy towards their rent; and, if not, what is the principle upon which certain sections of the community will be thus benefited at the expense of others?
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
I hope to be in a position at an early date to make a statement on the Government's proposals for dealing with the housing problem, and I would suggest that the hon. and gallant Member should await that statement.
