HC Deb 21 March 1927 vol 204 cc48-9W

asked the Minister of Health how many rural district councils have applied to be the authority under the Housing (Rural Workers) Act, 1926; and whether any difficulties have arisen in complying with their request?


96 rural district councils have so far made applications under Section 5 of the Housing (Rural Workers) Act, 1926, to be declared local authorities for the purposes of the Act, and my right hon, Friend is in accordance with the terms of the Section, consulting the county councils in regard to these applications. I can assure my hon. Friend that each case will be carefully considered on its merits, and that a decision will be arrived at as soon as practicable.
