HC Deb 06 March 1962 vol 655 cc45-6W
41. Mr. Brockway

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will authorise house building programmes to be submitted by local authorities on a five-year basis in order to further economy, efficiency and planning.

Dr. Hill

I will gladly consider forward programmes where there seems to be a good case for this, though five years would be a lot further than most housing authorities could look with any precision.
