HC Deb 18 June 1924 vol 174 cc2143-4W

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the various conflicting statements made in the course of the Debates in the House and for the better information of the public and Members, he, will call for a return from all local authorities to whom the housing subsidy has been granted under previous Housing Acts, showing the class of tenants to whom these subsidised houses have been let?


I do not consider that the value of such a return as is suggested would be commensurate with the labour and expense involved in its preparation.


asked the Minister of Health whether he has received a communication from the clerk to the Mitcham Urban District Council relating to the acceptance of a housing subsidy by a member of the council; if so, whether he has replied to the same; and would he state the terms of the letter from the council and the reply sent by the Ministry of Health?


I have received the letter referred to and am sending my hon. Friend a copy of the reply.
