HC Deb 04 June 1924 vol 174 c1239

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that a large number of habitable houses in Champion Park and Denmark Hill, Camberwell, have been recently sold for purposes of demolition; for what purpose this clearance of house property is being carried out; if he will inquire as to whether the present tenants have any prospect of securing alternative accommodation; and if any compensation has been offered in respect of the disturbance of tenancies, especially to the smaller tenants concerned?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Wheatley)

I am informed that six large houses belonging to the Salvation Army in Champion Park, Denmark Hill, are in process of demolition with a view to the erection on the site of a training college and residences for students; and that compensation for disturbance was paid to the tenants who have provided themselves with suitable alternative accommodation. I understand that the Salvation Army are also the owners of adjacent property, but that it is not intended to disturb the tenants of these houses at the present time.
