HC Deb 27 April 1950 vol 474 c120W
86. Viscount Hinchingbrooke

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that his Department has introduced a method of calculating the number of houses to be built by the Wareham and Purbeck Rural District Council during 1950 which results in that council being unable to issue any private building licences at all; and whether he will change this.

Mr. Bevan

The council have temporarily outrun their quota of licences. I have, however, agreed to their issuing a few more licences in cases of urgency.
