HC Deb 12 March 1924 vol 170 c2358W

asked the Minister of Health if any houses of timber construction have been approved for subsidy under the Housing Acts of 1919 and 1923; if so, what number; and how far such houses have been found satisfactory?


I have no exact record of the number of wooden houses approved for State assistance under the Housing Acts of 1919 and 1923, but the number is very small. No reports are sent to me in regard to houses which give satisfaction, although I sometimes receive complaints in regard to those which do not come up to expectations. These complaints are not confined to houses of any particular form of construction.
