§ 93. Sir FRANCIS FREMANTLE
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that, until he has declared the appointed day under Section 3 of the Housing Act, 1935, new tenants may be added without offence and, in fact, are being so added, to already overcrowded houses; and how soon he will be able to declare the appointed day, respectively, for London and other areas?
§ Sir K. WOOD
I am aware of the desirability of fixing the appointed day in such a way as to minimise the difficulties to which my hon. Friend refers, but I must take into account progress made in the provision of new accommodation required for the abatement of overcrowding.
§ Sir F. FREMANTLE
Does the right hon. Gentleman recognise that the delay is liable to invalidate the accuracy of the survey on which all action for decrowding under the Act is to be based?
