§ Lieut.-Colonel HORLICK
asked the Minister of Health how many systems of poured concrete in situ, as recommended by the Moir Committee, have been approved by his Department; and what are the names of such systems?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
It is not the practice of the Department to give general approval of particular systems of construction, and it is not necessary, under the present State-assisted housing schemes, for local 1933W authorities to submit for my approval details of the construction of houses unless the system of construction proposed is one for which a period of less than 60 years would be allowed for the repayment of a loan. Consequently I have no complete records of the number of systems which have been adopted. I have, however, information as to many systems or variants of systems of poured concrete, and if the hon. and gallant Member would desire to have particulars of these I should be happy to arrange an interview for him with technical officers of my Department.
