Mr. Day

asked the Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence whether he will give particulars of the manner in which the Government has decided to improve the organisation of supply or in any way accelerate the expansion of the Defence forces of Great Britain?

Sir T. Inskip

The organisation of supply and methods for the acceleration of the rearmament programme are continually being reviewed and improved. I regret it is not possible within the limits

1933; and what is the total number of houses involved in such arrangements?

Sir K. Wood

Up to 30th September, 1936, guarantees had been given under Section 2 of the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1933, by 14 Rural Districts in respect of 1,859 houses. I will send the hon. Member a statement giving particulars in regard to each of these authorities.
