TRANSIT HOUSING

AUCKLAND SCHEME

TALKS WITH GOVERNMENT

Satisfactory progress is being made in the negotiations between the Auckland City Council and the Government regarding the council's request that army buildings on the Domain and Victoria Park should be made available free of cost for transit housing purposes. An announcement to this effect was made this morning by Mr. H. P. Burton, chairman of the council's housing committee, following his return from Wellington. Together with the town clerk, Mr. T. W. M. Ashby, Mr. Burton held discussions with the responsible Government officials and the Minister of Finance, Mr. Nash.

"Wherever Mr. Ashby and I went we found widespread interest in the Auckland plan to erect 63 transit housing units on Victoria Park," said Mr. Burton. "The Wellington City Council, which will probably adopt a similar scheme at an early date, is sending several of its officers to Auckland to carry out. investigations."

The town clerk had remained in Wellington to confer further with Mr. Nash and.would return to Auckland to-morrow evening, added Mr. Burton. A full report would then be prepared for submission to the housing committee at its meeting on Tuesday next.
