HC Deb 22 June 1950 vol 476 c162W
Mr. Peter Smithers

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps are being taken to hasten the construction of new houses for lower and middle income families in Georgetown, British Guiana.

Mr. J. Griffiths

The central housing and planning authority is about to complete its planning scheme for Georgetown, and a Bill is being introduced in the Legislative Council to authorise a loan for the purchase of land for housing schemes to help the authority in giving early effect to its plans.
