HC Deb 18 July 1946 vol 425 c251W
82. Mr. Marples

asked the Minister of Health the average price per super foot of the tenders approved by his Department during the last three months for the erection of new houses; and the cost per super foot of new houses completed during the last six months where the final bill has been agreed and paid.

Mr. Bevan

To give the average price of tenders approved would be misleading, owing to the wide variation in local circumstances, and would tend to raise minimum price to the level of the average. The information requested in the last part of the Question is not yet available.
