HC Deb 21 February 1946 vol 419 c282W
Major J. Morrison

asked the Minister of Health why cottages, erected early in the war for agricultural workers, are not legally agricultural cottages and can be let to any tenant in the open market.

Mr. Bevan:

These cottages are subject to the provisions of the Housing Acts which require only that a number of council cottages equal to the number on which the special agricultural subsidy is being paid shall be let to members of the agricultural population.
