HC Deb 18 December 1945 vol 417 c1307W
Captain Marples

asked the Minister of Works when he proposes to allow the public to see the full sized mock-ups of prefabricated permanent houses designed and erected under the direction of the late Government in the Alexandra Palace.

Mr. Tomlinson:

The mocks-ups do not represent any particular type of prefabricated construction, but were intended to demonstrate the disposition of rooms and fittings in the house plans prepared in consultation with the Advisory Technical Panel of Local Authority Representatives. The exhibition was mainly for the benefit of housing authorities, and, as its purpose has substantially been achieved, it will shortly be closed. It is not proposed to open it to the public generally.
