HC Deb 23 May 1947 vol 437 cc313-4W
Mrs. Paton

asked the Minister of Health if, he is aware of the overcrowding in the village of Gotham, Nottinghamshire; whether the Basford Rural District Council has made any application for some of the permanent prefabricated rural houses, which are piled up in Government depots, to meet the need for houses in their area; and if he will inquire into the reasons why this rural district council is so slow in building permanent houses.

Mr. Bevan

Yes. The Council have recently been offered and have accepted 150 permanent prefabricated houses. Difficulty in acquiring sites has caused delay, but the Council now have a substantial building programme in hand.
