§ Mr. G. Macdonald
asked the Minister of Health whether he will state the number of houses built in the rural districts of Lancashire during the last three years; how many are occupied by rural workers; and how many have been built by private enterprise?
§ Mr. Bernays
During the three years ended 30th September, 1938, 9,731 houses were built in the rural districts of Lancashire. I regret that I have no information as to the number occupied by rural workers. Of the 9,731 houses, 9,410 were built by private enterprise, 9,074 being of a rateable value not exceeding £26.
