HC Deb 26 July 1934 vol 292 cc1921-2
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 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?


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.


Is the right hon. Gentleman paying very particular attention to the matter of conversion in Bethnal Green?
