HC Deb 22 April 1901 vol 92 c916
MR. THOMAS DEWAR (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether in the Census Returns it will be possible, with a view to supplying reliable information on the question of overcrowding in East London, to provide tabulated information as to the-number of one to six-roomed tenements, and the number of their respective occupants; and whether it is possible to include an accurate Return of the number of pauper aliens within the Metropolitan area.


Information as to the number of tenements consisting of one, two, three, and four rooms, with the number of occupants of each will be given, but it will not be possible to supply similar information with respect to tenements of five and six rooms. The answer to the second paragraph of the question must be in the negative.
