HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 c404W
93. Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs, in view of the eight million square feet of new office accommodation which are still untenanted, what estimate he has made of the approximate additional space in office blocks now under construction; and if he will introduce legislation to stop further office building until the housing shortage has been eased.

Mr. Corfield

My right hon. Friend has made no such estimate. The answer to the second part of the Question is "No". But I would refer the hon. Member to the reply my right hon. Friend gave on 28th July to the hon. Member for West Ham, North (Mr. A. Lewis).
