HC Deb 29 November 1938 vol 342 c254W
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.
