Mr. Rostron Duckworth
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Planning whether, in the case of houses under the Rent Restriction Acts, he can state the relative cost of carrying out necessary repairs to such houses both now and on 1st September, 1939?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I have been asked to reply. I regret I have no record which would enable me to supply the information desired, but the cost of repairs, in so far as labour and materials can be made available for the purpose, has undoubtedly risen considerably.
