HC Deb 22 June 1950 vol 476 cc148-9W
110. Mr. Joynson-Hicks

asked the Minister of Health from what dates respectively is the restoration to take place of the national housing allocation to 200,000 houses annually, and the local authority's right to issue permits for private housebuilding on a ratio of one to four council-built houses.

Mr. Bevan

The current programme is running at approximately this figure and will be so maintained in 1951 and 1952. As regards private building licences I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Wembley, South (Mr. Russell) on 16th June, of which I am sending him a copy.
