HC Deb 07 March 1946 vol 420 c113W
90. Captain Marples

asked the Minister of Health whether, with regard to the 16,162 tenders for houses accepted for. the large towns and cities, and the 3,196 tenders for the L.C.C. and Metropolitan boroughs, he will state the average tender price per house, exclusive of land, roads and services.

Mr. Bevan

I regret that the figures of cost have not yet been analysed in the form asked for by the hon. and gallant Member, but I will let him have them shortly.

80. Mr. W. Shepherd

asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been drawn to the request by certain local councillors, who are officers of the co- operative society, to be able to vote on tenders to which the society is a party; and what action he has taken in this case.

Mr. Bevan

In the absence of further information I cannot identify the particular case the hon. Member has in mind, but the general position is governed by Section 76 of the Local Government Act, 1933.
