HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 cc207-8W
121. Mr. Orbach

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning in view of the long waiting list of families seeking housing accommodation in the Willesden area, and the insuperable difficulty of satisfying the demand owing to shortage of building land in the borough, what steps he is taking to expedite the building of houses at Hemel Hempstead.

Mr. Lindgren

The Corporation are building houses as fast as they can. Schemes for 436 houses and flats have been approved and about half of these are already under construction. Their programme is now well into its stride and 1951 will see a substantial number of houses completed.
