HC Deb 22 April 1948 vol 449 c165W
87. Mr. Gooch

asked the Minister of Health the total number of new houses which county agricultural executive committees estimate are required for farm workers in England and Wales; and the number of authorisations issued to the local councils under the Government's priority scheme for farm workers.

Mr. Bevan

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave on 5th February to the hon. Member for Newbury (Mr. Hurd), of which I am sending him a copy. Statistics as to new tenders approved for rural district councils are given in the monthly Housing Returns.
