36. Brigadier Clarke
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will give an assurance that there will be no curtailment of house-building in the bomb-damaged cities.
§ Mr. Sandys
The rate of house-building in particular areas may vary from year to year, but I can give my hon. and gallant Friend the assurance that I shall most carefully watch the needs of bomb-damaged cities.
Does my right hon. Friend appreciate that the rate of house-building has trebled since the Socialists were in office? I hope that he keeps it up. We still need houses very badly in Portsmouth.
