§ 23. Mr. CHORLTON
asked the Minister of Health if there is any regulation as to density in rehousing on site in slum-clearance schemes; and, in view of the desirability of these being at a maximum, will he make known to the various towns concerned the high percentage possible 1925 that has been obtained in practice in re-housing when higher densities have been adopted?
Sir H. YOUNG
No, Sir. Each case is considered on its merits, having regard to the circumstances of the area and any town planning restrictions applicable to it. I think that local authorities are well aware of the position, and it does not seem to me to be necessary to take any special measures to call their attention to it.
§ Mr. CHORLTON
Will the right hon. Gentleman take special measures in future to advise the Manchester Corporation with respect to colliers' areas, in order that with the increased density the maximum number of people can be rehoused?
