Mr. David Adams
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the urgent need in Northumberland and Durham for the erection of some thousands of working-class dwellings to replace slums, he is prepared to allow a gradual resumption of demolition and rebuilding in areas where building materials and building labour are available and unused?
§ Mr. Elliot
I can assure the hon. Member that the housing position is under close and continuous review in relation to the demands on building materials and building labour for other purposes.
