HC Deb 18 February 1927 vol 202 c1274W

asked the Minister of Health how many houses have been completed in Devonport in connection with State-assisted schemes, specifying which schemes since 1st April, 1926; and how many are now being built?


I am unable to give separate statistics for Devonport, but in connection with State-assisted schemes in the County Borough of Plymouth, which includes Devonport, 64 houses were completed by private enterprise between the 1st April, 1926, and 1st February, 1927, under the Housing Act of 1923, and 82 under the Act of 1924. In addition 214 houses were completed by the corporation under the Act of 1924 during the same period. 340 houses are at present under construction in State-assisted schemes and 256 have been arranged for but not commenced, while authority has been given for an additional 284 for which arrangements have not yet been made.
