HC Deb 23 November 1950 vol 481 c82W
98. Mr. G. Longden

asked the Minister of Health if he will authorise local housing authorities to spend a maximum sum upon their 1951 housing programmes instead of his present system of authorising them to build a maximum number of houses so that, if local needs justify their doing so, such authorities may be encouraged to build a larger number of smaller houses.

Mr. Bevan

No. I am satisfied that the present system is better designed to achieve the desired results.
