§ 35. Sir MATHEW WILSON
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether, when giving his decision to a deputation of the members of the Metropolitan borough of Bethnal Green with regard to the Brady Street area, he was aware of the fact that other areas whose sanitary conditions were not so bad as that of the area mentioned have been 1316 treated under Part I. of the Housing of the Working Classes Act; and whether, taking this fact into consideration and the paucity of funds at the disposal of this small borough, he will reconsider his decision and treat this area under Part I. instead of Part II. of the above-mentioned Act?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Herbert Samuel)
I have not yet given a decision in the matter referred to, and before doing so I shall certainly consider all relevant circumstances.
§ Sir MATHEW WILSON
Owing to the unsatisfactory answer, I will raise this point on the Adjournment this evening.
