HC Deb 18 July 1946 vol 425 c250W
72. Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Minister of Health what percentages of the permanent and temporary houses which, to date, have been erected by local authorities and private enterprise, respectively, are occupied or ready for occupation; and what are the totals which cannot be occupied owing to lack of minor internal fittings.

Mr. Bevan

The number of houses completed by local authorities, and private developers respectively, is given in the Housing Returns which I publish monthly. Completed houses are houses which are occupied or ready for occupation. I am afraid that I have no figures to show how many houses which are structurally complete are not ready for occupation.
