Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the Minister of Health the maximum numbers employed at one time in erecting houses under the Addison schemes, and the numbers to-day employed on houses being built under the various forms of State assistance now in vogue?
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
The maximum number employed on building houses under the Housing, Town Planning, etc., Act, 1919, was in July, 1921, when the number was 149,854. Statistics are not available which would give the numbers who were employed on the erection of houses by private builders under the Housing (Additional Powers) Act, 1919, 1383W or the number at present employed on houses which are being erected with State assistance.
