§ 44. Mr. J. HARRIS
asked the Minister of Health whether, seeing that co-operative societies, building societies, and other benevolent institutions have hitherto advanced large sums of money whereby housing schemes have been carried through, he will consider approaching these bodies with the suggestion that in order to encourage house building they should set an example to banks and other money-lending institutions by advancing money free of interest for the purpose of building houses to be let at low rents?
§ Mr. HARRIS
Surely the hon. Gentleman dues not return a negative to the statement that co-operative societies have lent money for assisting housing schemes.
