HC Deb 27 May 1952 vol 501 c137W
91. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government his estimate of the number and types of new dwellings necessary to meet the housing needs of this country; and if he will take steps to secure the approximate aggregate total of present urgent housing applications registered with local authorities.

Mr. Marples

It is not possible to make any reliable estimate. At the moment my right hon. Friend is more concerned with meeting these needs than in adding them up.
