73. Air Commodore Harvey
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will make a statement on how the prefabricated houses built just after the war are standing up to climatic conditions; and what is their estimated life.
§ Mr. Marples
Generally the temporary bungalows are standing up to climatic conditions satisfactorily. It is not possible to estimate their life with any precision. If properly maintained they will be fit for occupation for a considerable time.
