HC Deb 26 February 1920 vol 125 cc1911-2
76. Mr. HALLAS

asked the Minister of Health how many cinemas are in course of erection in the London area; and if it is his intention to stop their erection in the interests of house building?


I understand that few, if any, cinemas are being erected in the County of London at the present time, but that in connection with proposals for the building of new cinemas or extensions of cinemas which have been submitted to them, the London County Council are considering the question of using their powers under Section 5 of the Housing (Additional Powers) Act, 1919.
