HC Deb 07 May 1957 vol 569 cc54-5W
3. Mr. Logan

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware of the waiting list of applicants for houses in Liverpool; and if he will defer sanctioning building on the areas outside the city until accommodation has been provided on all available vacant city sites.

Mr. Bevins:

My right hon. Friend knows that very many families in Liverpool are in urgent need of better housing accommodation. The housing needs of a city such as Liverpool which is suffering from severe congestion are best met by building simultaneously on appropriate sites available within the city and also outside its boundaries, on a pre-planned programme.
