STATE AID FOR. HOUSING WORK FOR VAST ARMY OF DIS- CHARGED MEN. The Government will make n, suffi- ciently large grant for the erection of houses to enable authorities to place in hand immediately the work of pre- paring designs for the laying out of sites and purchase of land for housing schemes. It is not, however, intended to commenoe the erection of the housea until after the war. About 300,000 dwellings will be erected for England and Wales, and 50,000 for Scotland. It is estimated that the work of building shall be commenced during the demo- bilisation of the forces, and employ- ment will thus be provided for several hundred thousand men. Among the proposals for London are tha.t local authorities, in preparing housing schemes, should give preferen- tial treatment to large families, that groups of houses specially designed should lie set apart for the tenancy of families members of which are suffer- ing from tuberculosis, that houses un- fit for human habitation shall be closed and, where necessary, demolished, that glum areas shall be cleared, and provi- vision made for the rehousing of the people dispossessed, and that housing j schemes shall be carried into effect wherever there is a shortage. Mr. Henry R. Aldridge, secretary of the National Housing and Town Plan- ning Council, stated that if the finan- cial assistance given by the Govern- ment was on adequate lines the num- ber of houses to be built in the year following the war would be quite 300.000, exclusive of the 50,000 to be i built in Scotland. A fine response had been made by the landowners to the appeal that they should sell their land ■at prices which would enable the best kind of town planning to be adopted.
