asked the Minister of Health what schemes of purchase and conversion of houses into flats have been carried out, stating, in respect of each scheme, by whom it was carried out and the cost of each; and in whose possession the properties now are?

Schemes for the purchase and conversion of houses into flats have been carried out by or on behalf of 46 local authorities, the number of flats provided being 752. In respect of 319 flats on behalf of eight local authorities, the work of conversion was undertaken by His Majesty's Office of Works; in other cases by the local authorities themselves. The information as to cost asked for is not yet in my possession. The properties are in the possession of the local authorities concerned.
