HC Deb 17 June 1948 vol 452 c74W
78. Mr. Hollis

asked the Minister of Health what are the average prices of the B.I.S.F., Howard, Wates, and Laing Easyform permanent prefabricated houses.

Mr. Bevan

The Howard house is supplied to local authorities under the provisions of Section 3 of the Building Materials and Housing Act, 1945. No final figures are yet available. The nationally agreed prices for the B.I.S.F., Wates and Easiform houses are £1,307, £1,274 and £1,210 or £1,222 respectively. These prices are subject to increase, because of rises in wage rates and costs of materials.
