Vol. 107 No. 8

Housing (Amendment) Bill, 1947— First Stage.

Leave granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to make further and better provision with respect to housing, to amend and extend the Housing (Financial and Miscellaneous Provisions) Acts, 1932 to 1946, the Housing of the Working Classes Acts, 1890 to 1931, the Labourers Acts, 1883 to 1941, and the Small Dwellings Acquisition Acts, 1899 to 1931, to make further provision for the financial assistance of local authorities in the provision of housing accommodation and to make provision with respect to other matters connected with the matters aforesaid.— (Minister for Local Government).
Second Stage fixed for Wednesday, 8th October.

This is a Bill we would like to see soon.

Most of the provisions have been drafted, but there are one or two matters still at issue and I fear the Bill will not be ready for circulation until the end of September.
