HC Deb 01 December 1964 vol 703 c51W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what is the considered housing target for 1965; and whether the Government intends to change it.

Mr. Crossman

My predecessor hoped that the number of houses completed in Great Britain in 1965 would approach 400,000. I see no reason to alter this. It is of more immediate importance to see that land is available and to ensure that the construction industry is equal to the demands of such a programme than to set new targets.
