HC Deb 23 February 1954 vol 524 c18W
66. Sir J. Crowder

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will circularise local authorities asking that consideration should be given to young childless married couples on their housing lists who are anxious to have children but feel they cannot do so in their existing unsatisfactory accommodation and who lose points because they have no children.

Mr. Marples

My right hon. Friend thinks that local authorities generally are giving effect to the recommendation made in 1945, and endorsed in 1949, by the Housing Management Sub-Committee of the Central Housing Advisory Committee that a proportion of council house tenancies should be allotted to recently married couples without children.
