101. Lieut.-Colonel MALONE
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the housing conditions in the East End of London; whether he is aware of the difficulty in districts such as Leyton in raising any forms of loan necessary to carry the projected building schemes into operation; what prospect does he hold out to the working classes of these districts of better houses; and how long does he anticipate they will have to wait?
§ Dr. ADDISON
I hope that the recommendations of the Committee appointed by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer, to which I hope effect will be given in the new Housing Bill, will enable local authorities to obtain the capital they require for their housing schemes.
