HC Deb 14 March 1923 vol 161 cc1542-3

asked the. Minister of Health whether he has received a communication from the Stepney Borough Council urging the Government to introduce legislation granting to local authorities, including Metropolitan boroughs, powers similar to those contained in Section 6 of the Housing (Additional Powers) Act, 1919, to prevent the user of dwelling-houses as factories or workshops; and, if so, whether he is in a position to state what action he proposes to take in the matter?


I have received the communication referred to and the suggestion is receiving my careful consideration, but I am not yet able to make a statement.
