§ Mr. G. Macdonald
asked the Minister of Health how many houses have been built in the rural areas in Lancashire under the Housing Act, 1938, and how many of these houses are occupied by agricultural labourers?
§ Mr. Bernays
By the 30th April last 139 houses had been completed in the rural districts of Lancashire under the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1938, but I have no information as to how many of these are occupied by agricultural labourers. Proposals are at present before my right hon. Friend for the erection of 148 houses in those rural districts, specifically for the agricultural population.
