asked the Minister of Health how many houses have been completed and occupied in Exeter since 1st August, 1945; how many of these are temporary and how many permanent, respectively; how many houses both temporary and permanent does he estimate will be completed by 30th April, 1946; and how many applications there now are for municipal houses.
§ Mr. Bevan
Two hundred and thirty-five houses have been completed and occupied in Exeter since 1st August, 1945, comprising 211 temporary and 24 permanent. I cannot give the estimate asked for. The number of applications for dwellings at present on the Local Authority's list is 4,997, of which 4,200 are estimated by the Authority to be "live" applications.
