HC Deb 24 September 1948 vol 456 c200W
Mr. Platts-Mllls

asked the Minister of Health what was the monthly increase in the population of London during the present year; how many new permanent houses have been built each month; and how many marriages have taken place each month.

Mr. Bevan

The Registrar-General informs me that he estimates the average monthly increase in the population of the administrative County of London during the first six months of this year to be about 5,700 and that the average monthly number of marriages registered in that area for the same period was 3,070. As regards to the second part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the Housing Returns.
