HC Deb 03 March 1925 vol 181 cc265-6W

asked the Minister of Health whether the Moir Committee has yet recommended that houses of the Athol' type should be erected for demonstration; and, if not, whether, in view of the preference expressed for this type by some local authorities, as compared with the Weir house, he will ask the Committee to give further consideration to the suitability of the Atholl type as an alternative method of construction?


The Committee on New Methods of House Construction reported that the Atholl houses were worthy of encouragement but that, having regard to the price quoted, they did not feel able to recommend that this system should be made the subject of special demonstration. I am glad to say that my right hon. Friend has been able to arrange for a reduction of the price and he has therefore asked a number of local authorities to undertake the erection of demonstration houses of this type.
