HC Deb 31 July 1956 vol 557 cc103-4W
56. Mr. C. Hughes

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many local authorities in England and Wales, respectively, have now resolved not to build any further houses or fiats for general needs.

Mr. Sandys

Local authorities have been asked to submit information about their housing programmes. This information will not be available until after the end of August.

75. Mr. Mitchison

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he has yet issued his proposed circular to local authorities asking them what are their plans for building houses next year; when he expects to get their replies; and whether he will publish them.

Mr. Sandys

Yes. I have made arrangements to obtain comprehensive information about future housebuilding by local authorities; and I hope to publish this in the autumn.
