HC Deb 18 February 1924 vol 169 c1327W

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?


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.
