asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the Leek Urban District Council have no allocation of houses for agricultural workers; and whether it is possible for him to make an allocation of 20 extra houses in addition to the usual allocation given.

The answer to the first part of the Question is "Yes" and to the second part "No." The allocations made to a local authority comprise all the houses authorised to be built in the district by or with the approval of the authority.

asked the Minister of Health what allocation of agricultural workers' houses are being given to the Leek Rural District Council; and how many such houses have been built since 1945.

The allocation made to the council for 1949 comprises all the houses authorised to be built in the district and does not specify separately houses for agricultural workers. As regards the second part of the Question, I regret that I cannot see my way to add to the statistics in the Housing Return.
