HC Deb 10 July 1946 vol 425 c100W
Sir H. Morris-Jones

asked the Minister of Health whether he will give increased facilities for private builders to build small residential houses and the conversion of large ones into flats, particularly in towns like Colwyn Bay, which has been practically all built by private builders.

Mr. Bevan

No, Sir. The Colwyn Bay Council has a long waiting list of applicants who want houses to let, and the building facilities available in the borough must be concentrated first on meeting this need. Builders in the borough who are anxious to build houses should offer their services to the Council, in appropriate cases in accordance with the arrangements announced in Circular 92/46, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
