HC Deb 18 January 1945 vol 407 c383W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Minister of Health the nature of the instructions he has issued to local authorities with regard to the standards to be conformed to when houses are converted into flats.

Mr. Willink

Local authorities have been advised from time to time that proposed works of adaptation and conversion of requisitioned premises must be reasonable and sufficient to render the accommodation fit for occupation having regard to wartime standards. The most recent advice is contained in a circular issued to housing authorities in the London Civil Defence Region, of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy.
