HC Deb 30 July 1946 vol 426 cc159-60W
143. Mr. Chamberlain

asked the Minister of Health whether he will take steps to ensure that the expression, cost of roads, is further elucidated, in conformity with Section 6 of the Private Street Works Act, 1892, when used in connection with the maximum selling price of a house on a licence granted by or on behalf of his Department.

Mr. Key

It is explained in the notes to the form of application for licence that the maximum selling price is the all-in price of the freehold, including cost of roads, sewers and other services, and my right hon. Friend has not received any representations from the local authorities or private builders that there is any doubt about what is meant by the expression "cost of roads."
