HC Deb 02 July 1925 vol 185 c2816W
Lieut.-Colonel HORLICK

asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered encouraging the development of house building by mass production by offering the subsidy now being given under the Wheatley Act for houses that can be sold as well as leased?


I have considered the suggestion contained in the question, but I am not satisfied that the desired effect would be obtained by an increase of subsidy or that the subsidy at present available for houses built for sale is inadequate. In any case fresh legislation would be necessary, and I can hold out no hope of this in the present Session.
