§ Mr. Hamling
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what representations have been made to his 23W Department on the price and supply of land for housing purposes in Greater London; and what reply he has sent.
§ Mr. Mellish
None. My right hon. Friend is however well aware of the land shortage and the high prices of housing land in London. But he is confident that enough sites are available for the current four-year housing programmes, and that further sites will become available for development; including the very large site at Woolwich Arsenal which will provide homes for 60,000 Londoners. The Government's new housing subsidy proposals will give substantial help towards meeting high land costs.
