HC Deb 25 July 1946 vol 426 cc40-1W
Mr. Digby

asked the Minister of Health the approximate cost per house, erected under Government or local government supervision, of the salaries and other expenses of the officials of his and other Departments engaged in work connected with the housing programme.

Mr. Bevan

The cost of salaries and of other expenses, excluding accommodation, of officials in the Ministry of Health who are engaged on work connected with the housing programme is approximately £375,000. I am not able to give the figures for officials in other Departments. The Housing Returns which I publish monthly give the number of houses built, building or in train.
