HC Deb 13 June 1947 vol 438 c158W
Mr. Ward

asked the Minister of Health whether the recent increase of £100 in the licensing limit for the price of new houses is to be made retrospective to a particular date; and whether any such instructions have been issued to local authorities.

Mr. Bevan

The maximum permitted selling price is specified in the licence for the building of the house and local authorities were informed in the circular issued on 25th February that the new conditions as to selling price and standards of building would be applicable to licences issued after the date of the receipt of the circular.
