HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c108W
103. Mr. Fenner Brockway

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if his attention has been drawn to the decision of the Hornsey Borough Council to permit the rebuilding of a house at a cost of £9,850; and what reply he has made to its application for a licence for this purpose.

104. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he has yet approved the request of Hornsey Borough Council for the granting of a building licence for a house with a sale price of £9,850 and a rental of £915 per annum.

Mr. Marples

The borough council were told that there was no objection to their issuing a licence for the rebuilding of this damaged house subject to the size and cost being kept within reasonable limits, and to the observance of current economy standards in the use of scarce materials. My right hon. Friend is asking the council for further details. I ought perhaps to add that two existing buildings will be released.
