HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 cc187-8W
137. Mr. Skinnard

asked the Minister of Health whether notwithstanding the present suspension of licences for private housing construction, licences may still be granted to persons in possession of their own sites and materials who wish to build their own houses without engaging labour for the purpose.

Mr. Bevan

Applications for building licences are considered where the applicant already has the site and all the materials required and the work will be carried out by unpaid labour.
