§ 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.
