§ 51. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Minister of Health whether the London County Council has presented a scheme for dealing with the slum area of Brady Street, Bethnal Green; when such plan was sent to his Department; whether it has been approved or rejected; and, if so, when was the London County Council informed of his decision?
§ Sir A. MOND
A local inquiry was held in June, 1920, into the scheme proposed by the London County Council for dealing with this area. The scheme involves a number of legal and administrative questions, and until these are settled a decision cannot be given upon this particular case. Action upon the scheme would in any event have to be deferred until further progress has been made with the provision of new houses.
