HC Deb 06 March 1928 vol 161 c271W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department, as representing the Ministry of Health, whether, seeing that he has recently informed the Harwich Urban District Council that he is unable to authorise the erection of more houses under a State-assisted scheme, in view of the necessity for housing accommodation in that area, and of the state of suspense in which local authorities find themselves, he will announce the policy of the Government towards this problem?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given on Thursday last to the question asked by the hon. Member for Middlesbrough West (Mr. T. Thomson).
