HC Deb 07 April 1949 vol 463 c199W
22. Mr. Dumpleton

asked the Minister of Health how many houses for owner-occupiers have been built since the end of the war; and how the number compares with the similar period after the 1914–18 war.

Mr. Bevan

Precise figures of the number of houses built for owner-occupiers are not available. With regard to the number of houses built by private enterprise after the 1914–18 war I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to my hon. Friend the Member for Plaistow (Mr. Elwyn Jones) on 25th February and for houses built after the last war to the Housing Return.

27. Mr. Ivor Thomas

asked the Minister of Health what was the number of dwellings in England and Wales at the latest convenient date.

Mr. Bevan

The latest available statistics are contained in the Report of the 1931 Census.
