COTTAGES. Ministry of Health Likes Scheme Of particular interest, in Swansea is a. remarkably strong advocacy in the cup- rent number of the Ministry of Healtir's organ, Housing," of alternative methods of cot tea ge construction. The Ministry has &o far kept an open mind on the, question, so it is important to notioe its i publication of particulars of special methods, with the intjjEuition that rsxy?e, will follow and the advice that Looal authorities and their technical advisoe-s, should give their earnest consideration to I these special forms of consturction." SEVERAL REASONS. I There are several reasons (continues Housing") why it is desirable that special forms of oonstruction should be considered witli favour. In the first place, there is the question of economy; from l information which has been < btained by, the Ministry It seems uvvbad e that houses of same of the approved nuiLcds can he constructod in targe i-,Lmltrs rapidly and at moderate prices, The rot- look also with regard to mab>:i \1B &dii the supply of labour is such iiiat »-tcr- native methods of construction should be encouraged, not, of course, to super- sede brick construction, but to supple- ment it. Some of the special forms of construc- tion have already been tried in thie (-,ase I of houaes or other buildings, nnd have proved their lasting mmlities. In addi- I tion, each method has bkfen carefully con- sidered by the special committee which has been appointed by the Ministry for this purpose, and has successfully passed their scrutiny. It would be preposterous to .suppose that the last word lia, bocm said as to housing materials or methods of ccai- structi-on; and it would he lamentable if. in the huge building programme which is before liS. that inventive ingenuity of the race which played so signal a part in securing the victory of the war did not also pay its tribute to the almost equally urgent necessities of peace. The Ministry strongly recommend each local authority, especially local authorities which are erecting houses in large num- bers. to consider whether they should not immediately provide for the erection of a group of houses, a "group sufficiently large to secure economic production, of one or more of the new methods of construction for which their district may be favourably placed, as a supplement to the houses of ordinary construction which they have already in hand."
