The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Hilton Young)

Since the passing of the Housing Act, 1930, resolutions have been received by my Department declaring 633 areas in England and Wales to be clearance areas and 25 areas to be improvement areas for the purposes of that Act. Of these areas, 116 and 1 respectively, were the subject of resolutions received during the last quarter of 1932.
