HC Deb 10 December 1963 vol 686 cc57-8W
Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs why only 237,247 houses were completed up till October, 1963, as compared with 249,284 houses for a similar period in 1962.

Sir K. Joseph

The fall in the number of houses completed in 1963 up to the end of October has been entirely due to the bad weather conditions experienced in the first quarter of the year.
