asked the Minister of Health if houses for the people are to be given priority in building; when it is anticipated that large-scale building will commence; and at what rents will the houses be let.

Generally the highest priority will be given to the building of small houses and the rebuilding of war-destroyed houses. Building to the fullest capacity of the labour available will begin this summer. So far as concerns local authority houses, it will be for the local authorities themselves to fix the rents to be charged.
