§ 40. Mr. TINKER
asked the Minister of Health the number of schemes sanctioned by him to local authorities, under the Housing Act of 1930, for the clearance of unhealthy areas; and how many persons will be re-housed when such schemes are completed?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Hilton Young)
Up to the 29th February last I had received resolutions declaring 394 areas in England and Wales, the clearance of which involves the displacement and re-housing of approximately 64,000 persons, to be clearance areas under the Housing Act, 1930. These resolutions do not require my sanction.
