asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that housing sites in Macclesfield are now complete; and if he will state when the first temporary houses will be delivered.

:I am informed that the development works are not yet completed and that there should be no delay in the delivery of the houses when the site is ready for them.

:Could the Minister speed up the deliveries of these temporary houses to St. Marylebone, where sites have been ready for many months?

:Yes, but the temporary housing programme is still suffering from the lack of initiative of the previous Government.

:Will the Minister issue a time and progress schedule to all the places where these houses have been approved, so that the local authorities can know when they will arrive?

Local authorities are much more interested in the arrival of the houses than in a time and progress schedule.
