HC Deb 01 February 1955 vol 536 cc95-6W
102. Mr. J. Harrison

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government why he has reduced the house building allocation to the Nottingham City Corpora- tion to 900 for the year, in view of the fact that Nottingham built 1,568 last year and have a waiting list of 11,000; and why he told the corporation that if they applied for permission to build more he could not guarantee to grant the application.

Mr. Sandys

The figures quoted by the hon. Member do not seem to take into account that, at the turn of the year, Nottingham City Council had nearly 2,000 houses in hand.
