HC Deb 30 October 1947 vol 443 c94W
Mr. J. P. L. Thomas

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the urgent need of houses in the City of Hereford, he will reconsider his decision to withdraw the 33 permanent aluminium houses which his Department had already allocated to this city.

Mr. Bevan

The 33 bungalows in question were part of a provisional allocation of 75 and were subject to review when the total demand had been ascertained. It is not possible to let Hereford have more than 42 without reducing the numbers required for coal miners elsewhere.
