HC Deb 20 July 1959 vol 609 cc88-9W
Mr. Sparks

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs how many new and average type dwellings could be built with labour and materials of a quantity comparable to that used to rebuild 218,215 war-destroyed houses and 3,544,858 war-damaged houses.

Mr. H. Brooke

I can make no estimate. By no means all the 218,215 war destroyed houses were in fact rebuilt.
