§ 23. Captain PETER MACDONALD
asked the Minister of Health how many local authorities have now forwarded to him copies of their programmes for slum clearance; and which authorities, if any, have indicated that it will be impossible for them to submit such programmes by 30th September next?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Hilton Young)
The answer to both parts of the question is "none." Only three weeks have elapsed since the issue of the circular letter asking that the programmes should be prepared.
§ Captain MACDONALD
Has the right hon. Gentleman given a time limit to local authorities to submit their schemes?
§ 24. Mr. PARKINSON
asked the Minister of Health whether he can now report any accelerated progress in slum clearance?
§ Sir H. YOUNG
It is too early yet for any recently increased activity to have taken shape in the form of orders submitted to me.
