HC Deb 19 June 1951 vol 489 cc41-2W
114. Sir W. Darling

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many applications have been made to local authorities for licences for self-built houses in each of the last five years, respectively; how many have been granted; and how many have been completed.

Mr. T. Fraser:

From March, 1949 when the issue of licences for this purpose began, to December, 1950, my Department authorised local authorities to issue 241 licences to people wishing to build houses with their own labour. I have no information about the licences issued since the beginning of this year. about the number of applications rejected by local authorities without reference to the Department, or about the number of houses completed.
