§ Mr. HICKS
asked the Minister of Health what reply has been sent to the application received from the Manchester City Council to build 2,500 houses; whether the Ministry is making any stipulation as to the type of house for which subsidies under the Housing Acts will be given; and the number of houses that have been built by the Manchester Corporation with two bedrooms and three bedrooms under the various Housing Acts?
Sir H. YOUNG
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on the 19th instant to my friend the hon. Member for Hulme (Sir J. Nall) on this subject. With regard to the last part of the question, the number of two-bedroom houses built or under construction by the Corporation is 2,133, and the number of three-bedroom houses is 13,482.
