HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 c179W
71. Mr. Royle

asked the Minister of Health if in view of the high rents which have to be charged for council houses, he will consider increasing the housing subsidies to local authorities, lower the rates of interest on housing loans and take any practical measures to bring down housebuilding costs.

Mr. Bevan

I am not in a position to add to the report which I presented to Parliament on 24th June last (H.C. 169/948).
