HC Deb 17 February 1944 vol 397 cc356-7W
Mr. Wood

asked the Minister of Health how many cities and large towns are erecting typical houses on the lines of the Ministry's recommendation; and what arrangements can be made for the civic interchange of information and inspection in such cases.

Mr. Willink

If my hon. Friend is referring to the design of houses the reply is that the issue of recommendations has been deferred pending the receipt and consideration of the report of the sub-committee of my Central Housing Advisory Committee under the chairmanship of Lord Dudley. If he is referring to new methods of construction, experiments are being, or are about to be, carried out by a few local authorities. If they are successful I shall certainly arrange for any necessary publicity so that other authorities may be able to benefit from them.
