HC Deb 30 March 1950 vol 473 c65W
97. Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Health as the town of Maidstone has 2,478 names on its waiting list for houses and he has given permission for only 200 houses to be built there this year, what further steps he proposes to take to remedy the situation.

Mr. Bevan

At the beginning of the year the town council had 191 houses under construction and also 48 houses in approved tenders but not yet started. The new allocation will enable them to put a further 224 houses into contract.
