Mr. Orbach

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning how many houses in each of the following new towns it is proposed to make available in relieving the housing shortage in Willesden, and when will this accommodation be ready: Stevenage, Welwyn, Hatfield and Harlow.

Mr. Lindgren

No block allocation of houses will be made to persons on the waiting list of any particular authority, but arrangements are being made, in consultation with development corporations and all the local authorities concerned for the allocation of houses to persons from those areas who are willing and able to find employment in the new towns.
