Delights Of Internal Water Supply

The Minister of Health believes that much can be done by advertisement to encourage the reconditioning of rural cottages.

In a communication issued with the Housing (Rural Workers) Amendment Act, 1938. he asks local authorities to stress the delights of internal water supply, bathrooms, and electric or gas lighting.

He also suggests that road vans can provide comfortable temporary quarters for tenants whose cottages must undergo severe reconditioning.

The Housing Bill makes it possible for local authorities to grant loans on more generous terms to owners of country cottages, for the purpose of improving the cottages. The loans which may be as much as two-thirds of the total cost of improvement, are only made if it is guaranteed that the cottage will be tenanted only by labourers for a period of twenty years.
