HC Deb 06 October 1931 vol 257 c990W

asked the Minister of Health the number of local authorities who have received sanction for house-building programmes of over 100 houses since January, 1931; how many have been started; and how many of such authorities have received sanction or refusal since 24th July?


The number of local authorities is 126. These local authorities have commenced to build over 27,000 houses since 1st January, 1931, but the information available does not enable me to say how many of these houses are included in the authorisations given since that date. The numbers of local authorities referred to in the last part of the question are 14 and none respectively.
