§ 31. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Minister of Health how many housing schemes dealing with slum areas have been submitted to his Department by the London County Council since 1918; the names of such schemes and what decision his Department has given on the same, and if any schemes are at present before his Department waiting a decision; and, if so, what are the names of the schemes and how many existing dwellings do they refer to?
§ Sir A. MOND
Three schemes dealing with slum areas have been submitted to my Department by the London County Council since 1918. These schemes relate respectively to the Brady Street area, comprising 310 dwellings; to the Bell Lane and Ellen Street area, comprising 360 dwellings, and to the Ware Street area, comprising 313 dwellings. No decision has yet been given in regard to these schemes. Some important questions of policy are involved, and I have recently discussed the whole matter with the London County Council.
