HC Deb 24 February 1948 vol 447 cc326-7W
Mr. D. Jones

asked the Minister of Health what representations he has received from railwaymen's organisations about the difficulty of transferred railwaymen in securing housing accommodation at the new stations; and whether he will consider according these key workers the same priority for houses as is given to other classes of essential workers.

Mr. Bevan

I have received representations from the National Union of Railwaymen. On the information before me I think needs would best be met by consultations with local authorities in particular areas. I am ready to arrange for such consultations on being informed where the problems mainly arise.
