asked the Minister for Health the number of houses constructed or reconditioned, respectively, with financial aid from the State in the rural areas of the country in each of the last three years?


Since the answer involves a number of figures, I will, with my hon. and gallant Friend's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

favourably a Measure for dealing with the housing in city and urban areas on the lines of the Rural Housing Act?


I do not think it would be practicable to frame a Measure similar to the Housing (Rural Workers) Act, 1926, for city and urban areas, owing to the essential difference in the conditions in these areas from those in rural areas, but I will consider the matter further.
