HC Deb 24 October 1947 vol 443 c8W
Lieut.-Commander Gurney Braithwaite

asked the Minister of Health whether he will now issue licences for the erection of houses in the borough of Beverley on the lines suggested by the corporation in their communication to his Department of 28th May, 1947.

Mr. Bevan

No. Local authorities were notified on 15th August, 1947, in a circular, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. Member, of the Government's decision that the issue of further licences cannot for the time being be authorised except in special cases referred to in the circular.
