§ Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the Minister of Health the counties in which the supply of rural houses is regarded as inadequate, giving in each case any estimate which his Department may have regarding the number of such houses needed?
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
I regret that I have no complete information on the subject, nor any sufficient data on which to base reliable estimates, but the returns which I have received indicate that there are few, if any, counties in England and Wales in which no need of the kind exists.
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the Minister of Health how many rural districts there are where the estimated product of a penny rate for the present financial year does not exceed fivepence per head of the population; and how many rural districts there are where the poundage of the general rate levied for the year 1930 exceeds ten shillings?789W
