HC Deb 23 February 1933 vol 274 c1919W

asked the Minister of Health how many applications he has received for a housing loan from local district councils; how many of such applications have been sanctioned and how many refused and, in the latter case, for what reasons; what steps are being taken by his Department to ensure that houses are built in the districts to which loans are being refused; and how the Ministry assures itself in these cases that private enterprise will do all that is necessary?


I regret that all the particulars sought are not available. The total amount of loans sanctioned for housing purposes during the last 12 months is £19,312,110. On the general issue raised, a statement was recently issued on my authority of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy.
