§ 31. Mr. GRAHAM WHITE
asked the Minister of Health the number and scope of slum-clearance and re-housing schemes so far approved under the Housing Act, 1930?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Arthur Greenwood)
I have received resolutions declaring 11 areas to be clearance areas, one clearance order and one compulsory purchase order. The number of persons occupying the 11 areas is approximately 5,400.
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
I am satisfied that these figures do not give us any real evidence. As a matter of fact, local authorities are now preparing their five year programmes.
