HC Deb 15 December 1948 vol 459 c160W
Mr. Gunter

asked the Minister of Health how many applications for building licences have been received by the Benfleet Urban District Council from persons claiming to have all the necessary building materials in their possession and undertaking not to employ building labour; how many of these applicants had been informed by the Benfleet Council, prior to June, 1948, that the licences would be forthcoming, but were subsequently refused on the instructions of his Department, and in view of the misleading information first given to these persons will he now agree to the issue of such licences outside the normal allocation to the Benfleet Council.

Mr. Bevan

I have not the information asked for in parts one and two of the Question. I am making inquiries and will communicate with the hon. Member.
