§ 22. Major NATHAN
asked the Minister of Health whether any Exchequer grants are available under the Housing Act, 1530, for the provision of re-housing 1922 accommodation for persons of the working classes who are displaced in those cases where two back-to-back houses are converted into one through house?
Sir H. YOUNG
Yes, Sir. This matter has been receiving close consideration and it has now been decided that. in the circumstances suggested, grants may be paid towards the necessary re-housing on the basis of the number of persons contained in the smaller of the two families inhabiting the two houses before conversion.
§ Mr. C. WILLIAMS
Is the right hon. Gentleman paying very particular attention to the matter of conversion in Bethnal Green?
