§ Mr. MacColl
The Ministry's records show that during the ten-year period referred to by my hon. Friend Huddersfield County Borough completed 1,756 dwellings compared with 2,838 demolished. In addition, during the same period over 3,500 new dwellings were built in the Borough for private owners.
My right hon. Friend is aware of Huddersfield's housing needs and would consider sympathetically any proposals from the Borough for an increase in their building programme.
