HC Deb 01 May 1947 vol 436 c270W
101. Mr. Jennings

asked the Minister of Supply when he proposes to revise the present inefficient accounting system in respect of housing estates under his control so that such housing managers' accounts will show clearly, in respect of each property, the total income and the exact expenditure on insurance and repairs, including repairs carried out by the Ministry of Works.

Mr. Leonard

The housing managers accounts show only the receipts and expenditure for which the managers are responsible. These are purely cash accounts and it would be an unnecessary expenditure of time and effort to post to these accounts items for which the housing managers are not accountable.
