§ Mr. D. Somerville
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the difficulties facing various local authorities in the Greater London area in securing free available sites for housing; and whether, when no proposals are put forward by the local authorities concerned for financial assistance under the Housing Act, 1935, he will consider bringing to their notice the desirability of doing so in the public interest?
§ Sir K. Wood
I am aware that the question of obtaining suitable sites adequate for their housing needs is a difficulty to some authorities in the Greater London area. With regard to the last part of the question if my hon. Friend has any particular case in mind I shall be glad to look into it.
