Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Health how many local authorities have acquired no land for permanent housing sites; and of such local authorities how many have no need at present to make such acquisitions.
At present, 29 local authorities in England and Wales have acquired no land for permanent house sites. I understand that 24 have no present intention of building permanent houses. The position in these areas is being investigated.
Will the Minister give us an assurance that these 29 local authorities are dominated by Conservatives?
I do not anticipate that such political considerations will be involved.
Is it a fact that, in 24 of these 29 local authorities, they have no need for housing sites at the present moment?
I said that I understand that 29 had no present intention. I am investigating whether their intention bears some relationship to the local circumstances which might justify the authorities.
