asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will offer a housing medal for outstanding examples of improvement or conversion.

Yes, Sir. The housing medal competition for 1955 will be in two parts. The first is to feature schemes of conversion or improvement carried out by public and private owners; the second, schemes of new housebuilding by private enterprise.

While thanking my hon. Friend for that reply, may I ask him how many people have seen the current exhibition in Oxford Street of improvements and conversions?

Up till yesterday evening, approximately 75,000 in 21 days, including many local authorities and organisations.
