Mr. De la Bère

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works whether in connection with the lay-out of the first factory-made house, the prototype of 500,000, which is now on inspection at Millbank, favourable consideration will be given to the alteration in position of the gas-meter which at present occupies the whole cupboard under the sink; and if he will consider placing these meters outside the dwelling altogether.

Mr. Hicks

Detailed improvements in the design and layout of the prototype factory-made house are under consideration and the hon. Member's suggestion will be considered with others.

Captain Trevor Cox

asked the Minister of Health how many of the recently designed prefabricated houses will be erected in the Stalybridge and Hyde area; and when it is anticipated that building will start.

Mr. Willink

It is not possible give the information asked for until after the prototype house has been approved.
