asked the Minister of Health the regulations controlling the density of houses permitted to the acre in both rural and urban districts?

As my hon. Friend was informed by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Town and Country Planning in a recent reply, there are no such regulations.

Will my right hon. Friend give some guidance in this matter, because it is rather important in the laying-out of houses in future?

I shall keep in close touch with the Minister of Town and Country Planning on this subject. There was a provision in the Act of 1924, but that was repealed by the Act of 1933.
