44. Mr. ROSTRON DUCKWORTH
asked the Minister of Health in view of the fact that New Year's Day is to be the second appointed day under the Housing Act, 1935, what steps will be taken to inform the public before that date as to their precise responsibilities and obligations with regard to overcrowding?
§ Sir K. WOOD
Local authorities are empowered to publish the information referred to by my hon. Friend, and I have in circulars and on other occasions stressed the necessity of their making full use of these powers. I have no reason to suppose that in any area for which the appointed day is 1st January next, the local authority have failed to give adequate information to the public.
