HC Deb 25 May 1944 vol 400 cc950-1W
Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of adjacent local authorities interpreting the same model by-laws in such different ways that a typical £600 house varied as much as £40 in cost when built in these different areas, he will take the necessary action to avoid the continuance of this variation in postwar housing costs.

Mr. Willinkt

As my hon. Friend will appreciate, differences in costs may be due to other factors than by-laws. The possibilities of securing more uniform interpretation of by-laws are, however, being explored.
