§ 50 and 51. Sir JOHN POWER
asked the Minister of Health (1) whether he can arrange with the Minister of Labour for the publication, monthly or quarterly, of statistics relating to slum clearance;
(2) whether he can make a statement as to the progress in connection with slum clearance?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
My hon. Friend is no doubt aware of the paper published in November last, which includes figures for the last six months' progress in slum clearance. A further paper dealing with progress up to March last will be ready for publication at the end of this month. My right hon. Friend proposes to continue the publication of these statements at six monthly intervals, and he hopes the information so available will meet my hon. Friend's object.
