§ 62. Mr. H. Butler
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government for how many houses building authority was sought by local authorities in 1955; for how many it was granted; and for how many it was refused.
§ Mr. Sandys
In many cases authorisations are made before the receipt of any application. In others, the building programme is settled through informal discussion between the regional representatives of my Ministry and the local authorities concerned. Any figures which I might quote would therefore be incomplete or misleading.
