HC Deb 27 July 1926 vol 198 cc1932-3W
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?


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 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.
