HC Deb 24 October 1950 vol 478 cc334-5W
Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Health if he will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT figures showing the amount of subsidy per house provided by the local authority and by the Government respectively for ordinary housing and for slum clearance houses for the period 1920 to 1950 inclusive.

Mr. Bevan

The many provisions governing the payment of subsidies for houses from 1920 to 1950 are contained in the following Acts—the Housing, Town Planning, etc. Act, 1919, the Housing (Additional Powers) Act, 1919, the Housing etc. Act, 1923, the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1924, the Housing Act, 1936, the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1938, the Housing (Financial and Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, 1946 and the Housing Act, 1949. I regret that it would not be practicable to give in a form suitable for circulation in the OFFICIAL REPORT a summary of these provisions which would not be misleading.
