asked the Minister of Health what steps he proposes to take about the number of living-rooms over war-damaged shop premises which are not being repaired by local authorities because they come under business classificfiation and which could be placed at the disposal of those seeking homes.

:Local authorities are authorised to carry out work of war damage repair to shop premises where they are combined with living accommodation or where the business portion of the premises is structurally inseparable from the dwelling accommodation above. If the hon. Member has any particular case in mind where difficulty has arisen, and will let me have details, I will have inquiries made.
