§ Mr. Linstead
asked the Minister of Health how many plans for aged persons' dwellings have been submitted to his Ministry by local authorities in England and Wales since 1st August, 1945; and in how many cases approval has been refused.
§ Mr. Bevan
Tenders for the erection by local authorities of some 200 dwellings for aged persons have been approved since the 1st August last. I have no record of the rejection of plans or tenders for the erection of such houses. If the hon. Member has any case in mind and will communicate with me about it, I will make inquiries and let him know the result.
