HC Deb 16 December 1949 vol 470 c372W
Sir W. Darling

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, in view of the recent instructions by the Department of Health that relaxations in private building licences made during the past years in favour of classes other than agricultural, miners and key workers, must temporarily be withdrawn, if he will state what relaxations were made during this period; and to what classes of applicants.

Mr. Woodburn

In the early part of this year, the prevailing restrictions were relaxed in favour of applicants engaged in essential public services, applicants suffering hardship from ill-health, and applicants prepared to build their own houses with spare time labour.
