§ Mr. S. Shephard
asked the Minister of Health how many of the houses built during the war for agricultural workers are unoccupied; how many are let to non-agricultural workers; and how many are occupied by agricultural workers.
§ Mr. Bevan
I regret that this information is not available. These houses now form part of the general body of houses provided by local authorities for agricultural workers Local authorities are required to reserve a number of houses for agricultural workers equal to the number for which agricultural subsidy is paid but are not required to reserve particular houses for such workers.
