HC Deb 07 March 1927 vol 203 c860W

asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been called to the statement of the chairman of the housing committee at Great Crosby, Lancashire, that no more subsidy houses are required in the district; and whether he has received any other similar evidences showing that the need for such State aid is ceasing elsewhere also?


My attention has not been drawn to the particular statement referred to by the hon. and gallant Member. A certain number of local authorities have informed me that in their opinion there is no need for the continuance of financial assistance for the erection of houses by private enterprise in the circumstances of their particular district.
