HC Deb 16 November 1950 vol 480 cc179-80W
80. Sir R. Acland

asked the Minister of Health whether he will alter the present system of making housing allocations to local authorities so as to allow proportionately larger numerical allocations to those who wish to build higher proportions of one and two bedroomed houses.

Mr. Bevan

The existing system of allocations is sufficiently flexible to allow account to be taken of considerations such as those mentioned by my hon. Friend when the detailed building programme of an authority is known.
