Mr. R. Duckworth
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the statement at Manchester of his chief town-planning inspector that some municipal housing estates were deficient in many ways and even badly sited, he can state whether his Department is consulted with regard to the lay-out of all such estates?
§ Sir K. Wood
It is true that there have been defects of the kind to which my hon. Friend refers in some schemes but I am satisfied at present that the arrangements for consultation generally between my Department and local authorities on these matters are adequate and that full use is being made of them.
