HC Deb 06 November 1930 vol 244 c1038
83. Mr. ALBERY

asked the Minister of Health whether he can now report any accelerated progress in slum clearance?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Arthur Greenwood)

No, Sir, since time must obviously be allowed to local authorities to formulate their proposals under an Act which became law as recently as August last.


Does the right hon. Gentleman mean that no accelerated progress has taken place since this Government has been in office?


That was not the question that was put to me.


Are we to understand, from the right hon. Gentleman's answer, that he is very disappointed with the working of the Slum Clearance Bill?
