HC Deb 28 May 1936 vol 312 cc2225-6W

asked the Minister of Health the number of houses built by the Borough Council of Llanelly under the various housing Acts in the past 10 years, and the number of applications for houses now in the hands of the borough council and for whom no houses are available?


The number of houses built by the Llanelly Borough Council during the period mentioned is as follows:

Housing Act, 1923 136
Housing Act, 1924 98
Housing Act, 1925 162
Housing Act, 1930 44

In addition 104 houses are in course of erection under the Housing Act, 1925.

I am informed that there are 1,130 applicants on the council's waiting list of applicants for council houses, but I am not aware how many of these applicants are at present living under bad housing conditions. The council's slum clearance programme covers 151 houses and I am at present awaiting the submission of their report on overcrowding following the survey.
