asked the Minister of Health when it is proposed to build on the foundations of the 410 houses already laid on the site of the City of London housing scheme at Ilford on amended plans?

No suggestions for the use of the site in question have yet been submitted to me, and I do not propose to take any action at present.

Has the right hon. Gentleman considered the waste involved in this, that houses are needed and that men require work?

I do not consider there is any waste. The foundations of the houses are not taking any harm, and it will be possible to put up the houses at a cheaper rate in a short time.
