HC Deb 10 March 1932 vol 262 c1961
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.
