HC Deb 14 May 1936 vol 312 c577W

asked the Minister of Health whether he will state, in relation to the financial provisions of the Housing Act, 1935, for the relief of overcrowding, which towns in this country have obtained, or are obtaining, a subsidy by reason of flat construction and which towns have received, or are receiving, a subsidy by reason of the heavy rating burdens they are already carrying?


The only flats approved under the Housing Act, 1935, are those which are being erected by the London County Council. A subsidy in respect of houses has been approved under Section 32 of that Act in the case of five local authorities, Norwich and West Hartlepool County Boroughs, Thurnscoe and Royston Urban Districts and Sedge-field Rural District.
