§ Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the schemes of the Government for the relief of distress in necessitous districts, he proposes, first of all, to absorb the unemployed building operatives in the construction of new houses, for which there is need; and whether the Government have considered, or will consider, the adoption of such schemes with the object of providing houses for those who cannot pay economic rents?53W
§ Miss LAWRENCE
My right hon. Friend has every hope that the Housing Bill, which we shall have before us to-morrow, will be an effective means of securing progress in both the directions mentioned in the question.
