HC Deb 24 February 1927 vol 202 cc1911-2
60. Mr. T. THOMSON

asked the Minister of Health the amount of Exchequer assistance granted to local authorities in England and Wales for slum clearance schemes for each year since 1919 under Parts I and II of the Housing Act., 1890, showing separate figures for London and for the rest of England and Wales?


As the answer contains a number of figures, I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

Prior to the financial year 1924–25, separate accounts were, not furnished to the Department for expenditure under Parts I and II of the Housing Act, 1890, as distinct from Part III of that Act, and I regret that I am unable to furnish information prior to that year. The payments made on account of Exchequer subsidy for 1024–25 onwards are as follow:

Year. London. Rest of England and Wales. Total.
£ £ £
1924–5 12,800 2,592 15,392
1925–6 18,950 8,000 26,950
1926–7 (Estimate). 26,050 18,150 44,200
