§ Mr. Randall
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what was the number of council dwellings built in the Borough of Gateshead during the last 12 months in respect of slum clearance and other purposes respectively.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
During the twelve months ended on 31st October, 1959, 263 council houses were completed within the borough. I have no information as to the allocation of these houses to meet particular needs; this is entirely a matter for the local authority.
