HC Deb 07 March 1946 vol 420 c115W
Mr. R. Mackay

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the figures relating to temporary housing in the county borough of Kingston-upon-Hull, as given on page 7 of Appendix B to the Housing Return for England and Wales, on 31st January 1946, under the columns headed Under construction including slabbing, and Completed, should read 1,015 and 656 instead of 478 and 66, respectively; and if he will have the necessary correction made.

Mr. Bevan

I regret that the figure quoted in respect of houses completed was a printer's error and should according to my information have read "668."As this is slightly different from the figure given by my hon. Friend I will have it checked with the local authority. The number of houses under construction, including sites under slabbing but excluding houses completed, is 478 as stated in the Return.,
