asked the Minister of Health whether he will describe the procedure to be followed by rural district councils in erecting houses for farm-workers under the latest scheme?

The procedure for the war-time emergency programme of cottages for farm workers has been designed to be as simple as is possible in the special circumstances. Full authority has been delegated to regional officers to settle most matters locally. The details of the arrangements are given in a circular which has been issued to the rural district councils concerned, and I am sending my hon. Friend a copy.
