[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.] SIR,—Is Mr. Chamberlain to

come to grief over his Housing Bill because every family is not exactly like each other family ? Are all to have several children who require a quiet room to study in, a granny who wants a quiet retreat where she ean take a nap, or lovers who want a place for courtship ? No, every household has its separate requirements, so why must all the houses be planned the same way ? Let some have a larger living-room, some a smaller living-room and a separate miniature parlour, and according to their wants they can decide for themselves which arrangement they prefer and take the house that suits them best.—! am, Sir, &c.,

A. E. G.
