HC Deb 15 May 1952 vol 500 c161W
138. Mr. W. W. Astor

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government when he hopes to implement the recommendations of the Hobhouse Report on the improvement of agricultural cottages.

Mr. Marples

These recommendations to which legislative effect was given in the Housing Act, 1949, are being implemented so far as labour and materials allow, and my right hon. Friend hopes it will be extended.
