asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many ex-Service huts are still used for housing facilities in the Spilsby rural district, and why he recently restricted the council housing programme for Spilsby in 1954 from 130 to 60 when conditions still exist such as described in correspondence which has been sent to him.

55 families are still living in huts used for emergency housing purposes on four sites in Spilsby rural district. As my hon. and gallant Friend has already been informed by letter, I do not anticipate any restriction in the completions of this authority in 1954. I expect them to reach a total at least as high as in recent years. They should thus be able to continue to rehouse families from these ex-Service huts.
